Leave it to the chicest of all mothers, Gwyneth Paltrow, to give us a feminine version of the "dad sneaker" supermodels are wearing right now. While visiting the California Institute of Technology with music and tech mogul D.A. Wallach, the newly engaged Goop founder wore her best casual college-tour look in a pair of black Balenciaga sock sneakers. You know, just like any regular (celebrity) mom would while touring a university campus.

The mother of two rocked her high-end kicks with a puff-sleeved poplin top and cropped cargos, a laid-back outfit that might typically call for a flat or sandal but now officially requires a set of stretchy sock sneakers.
