Jennifer Garner was spotted alongside her son Samuel on Oct. 19. The mother-son duo took a quick stroll hand in hand in Los Angeles. Garner wore casual clothing for her outing with family, styling classic jeans and funky sneakers.
Outfitted in closet staples, Garner wore a white button-up shirt which she tucked into her high-waisted light wash mom jeans, creating a casual on-the-go look perfect for an outing with kids. Garner accessorized with a green Fitbit and wore her dark brown hair parted in the middle in a straightened style.
Whether she’s working out, staying in, or running errands, Garner loves her sneakers. Staying true to that sentiment, the Texas native laced up chunky white Loewe sneakers with its swirling green logo down the sides.
The retro-inspired footwear came equipped with chunky rubber soles set on an oversized silhouette with all-white laces, the dark green detailing creating a pleasing contrast. A closet staple for many, chunky sneakers often act as a blank canvas for many patterns and colors given the shoes versatile nature.
Chunky sneakers were popularized in the 1980s for their practicality, cushy and stability. Though the sneaker style’s popularity slowed in the 2000s, chunky sneakers reemerged as part of the divisive “ugly” shoe trend in the late-2010s, capturing the attention of all genders.
When it comes to shoes, Garner’s go-tos are often versatile and comfortable. The “Adam Project” actress regularly wears athletic sneakers that are ideal for school pickups or running, from brands like Brooks, Newton, Glycerin and Nike. However, contemporary styles by high-fashion brands have also entered her rotation, like Brunello Cucinelli oxfords, Chloé sandals, and sneakers by Gucci, Prada and Isabel Marant. When dressing up, she often opts for pointed-toe boots and pumps by Jimmy Choo, Roger Vivier and other top brands.
