Paris Fashion Week Is all About the Sneakers

Paris Fashion Week showcased immaculate clothing pieces and fresh sneakers, so we rounded up some of the best new releases.

Paris Fashion Week has finally come to an end. And whilst our favorite luxury brands showcased beautiful and immaculate clothing pieces, one little detail that really stood out was the inclusion of sneakers.

The hype surrounding fashion shows for brands such as Versace, Gucci, Balenciaga and Maison Margiela was unabashedly increased by the “ugly” sneakers that these brands have created. (Sneakers and luxury clothing are no longer a fashion faux pas!)

We’ve rounded up some of the best new releases from our favorite brands.

 

Nike x Undercover

The well loved Japanese label Gyakusou released new shoes which were not only fashionable but also highly functionable as they are inspired by Jun Takahashi’s love for running. Titled the “Nike React Element 87/ Undercover”, it boasts a neon upper and a midsole made out of Nike Running’s new React foam.

 

Nike x CDG

Talk about dream platforms! CDG and Nike have released many sneakers over the last few decades, but nothing compares to this bad boy. Designed by the great Rei Kawakubo, the Cortez’s are called the “Comme Des Garcons CAMP” and are inspired by Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay titled “Notes on Camp”.

 

Balenciaga

Surprise, it’s not another variation of the Triple S, and the new sneaker looks like something you would trek in. We personally like these more than the Triple S and Demna Gvasalia did an amazing job with putting out the sneakers in eye-catching colourways.

 

Versace x 2 Chainz

The Atlanta-bred rapper designed an “extra AF” sneaker with fashion haus Versace. Dubbed the “Chain Reaction” because of the soles that quite literally look like chains, the sneakers boast multiple colourways and also come in different prints.

 

Nike x Off-White

This is Virgil Abloh’s second take on the classic VaporMax. The show that started a riot outside the venue featured the new sneaker that came in two colourways: all white or all black.
