Leave it to Tony O. Elumelu to jump on viral fashion trends and rock the hell out of it.

The Nigerian economist, entrepreneur and philanthropist was photographed on his way back to Nigeria from the United Arab Emirates sporting a pair of chunky kicks (Balenciaga dad sneakers) that was once regarded as an ultra-lame concept — and quite honestly, we’re into it.

Looking sharp per usual, the UBA chairman’s laid-back ensemble consisted of a simple light-weight monochrome sweatsuit. His face mask completed the comfortable and stylish look with a health-conscious finish.

Sneakers are one of the most popular shoe styles for public figures off-duty styles. These dad sneakers which became made popular after Balenciaga’s Fall 2017 Fashion Week runway debut have been sported by many style stars including Jaden Smith, Bella Hadid, Selena Gomez and so on.

The multi-soled shoes may very well be statement pieces, but they’re also great travel shoes, thanks to their soaring comfort level and fun aesthetic.

Take a page from Elumelu’s stylebook and pair the chunky sneakers with a matching ensemble that’s equal parts comfortable and glamorous for the perfect travel outfit. Or just a t-shirt and your favourite travel pants will do.
