On her feet, the model wore New Balance sneakers that dads have been wearing for decades. Gerber chose the 990 v5, which has a suede and mesh upper, a blown rubber outsole and a dual-density foam collar. The shoes retail on Newbalance.com for $175.

She completed her look with Gucci’s Jackie nylon bag.

Gerber isn’t just into her New Balances for pairing with casual ensembles. On Jan. 21, she was spotted en route to the Chanel show wearing a Saint Laurent coat, a gray collared shirt and high-waisted black trousers. While the look may have seemed primed for pumps or loafers, Gerber went with her dad sneakers. She accessorized with an Off-White handbag.
