If you’ve been on Instagram in the last two years, you’ve seen Fila Disruptor II sneakers. They are the platform dad sneakers IG It-girls rock with dresses, sweats, jeans — basically anything. And right now, you can grab them for 40 percent off at Bloomingdale’s.
Called the “go-to ugly sneaker for Gen Z girls” by Dazed, these shoes are indeed divisive — but wildly popular. Disruptor II kicks are the reincarnation of the original Fila Disruptors, first released in 1996 when platforms reigned.
Though platforms eventually went out of style, Gen Z and millennials brought countless ‘90s trends back into fashion over the past several years, including chunky soles. In 2018, the Fila Disruptor II style exploded in popularity — and really hasn’t quit since.
Right now, you can pick up the classic Disruptors you see all over Instagram for under $40 at Bloomingdale’s. With a massive sole, exaggerated treads and endless dad vibes, these shoes will be your new go-to kicks.
Shop: Fila Disruptor II Sneaker, $39 (Orig. $65)
Along with the classic style, the shoes comes in countless variations, some of which are also currently on sale. For example, two mesh variations — a white pair with gray detailing and a black-and-pink pair — are currently 44 percent off at Bloomingdale’s.
