The shoes maketh the man.
Nothing like a fresh pair of sneakers to walk away from 2020 in style. The latest sneaker drops include our favourite designers, so we know these quality pairs will last for a long time to come. Go ahead and splurge on these:
Nike AF-1 Carter
With the latest Air Force, Nike retains the shoe’s classic aesthetic while adding in the Nike Crater Foam midsole. The sneaker’s foam backer is made with 20% recycled TPU, while its upper is built from PU recycled synthetic leather. That’s sustainable innovation meeting iconic, timeless style as part of Nike’s Move to Zero environmental efforts.
Dior Men B27 Sneakers
Dior is making a new sneaker statement where it moves from the 80s to a skateboarding-inspired feel. The B27 sneakers come in white, black and grey as a tribute to Monsieur Dior’s favourite colour. These sneakers are available in high and low tops, giving the wearer the freedom to opt for a sporty or more refined look.
Louis Vuitton LV Trainer Tricolour
Virgil Abloh has designed all new LV Trainers now in tricolour, combining white calf leather with accents of blue and red. The shoes are inspired by basketball sneakers, featuring an elaborate construction which takes seven hours to stitch. The tricolour LV Trainers made their debut in Louis Vuitton‘s Fall/Winter 2020 men’s show.
Fendi Flow Sneakers
These are unisex sneakers first introduced however in Fendi’s Fall/Winter 2020/21 men’s catwalk. The name ‘Flow’ takes on the natural F that seems to almost float along the sole line. Made of sporty suede and a see-through tech fabric, these sneakers are super light with a rubber sole for incredible comfort.
Zegna Triple Stitch Sneaker
The new Triple Stitch sneakers designed with a triple crossed elastic, enabling them to slip on and off easily. This season the shoes are also reworked using a more lightweight and flexible construction to up the comfort levels when worn. Light, classic, comfortable — it’s an everyday pair of sneakers available in a spectrum of colours.
