T. Ton is well known for calling the ‘next big thing’ and Mr. Ton has announced his list of 2011′s off-runway fashion statements of the year… with a surprising finish for the sneaker. According to the trend-watcher, that closet staple sports shoe has been inching ever closer to the sky-high heels popularity:

After years of towering around in sky-high heels, it was only a matter of time before fashion insiders came back down to earth and slipped into something more comfortable. Embraced by tastemaker Phoebe Philo as she makes her Celine bows and also seen in countless editorials, the sneaker has become the shoe of choice.

So today’s end-of-the-year question is this: would you, could you… did you give up your platforms and stiletto’s in favor of the much-more comfy sneaker? Or is it possible that Mr. T. Ton is… (*gulp)… wrong?

Let us know what you think!
