If you fancy yourself a sneaker collector, the luxury market will have a number of swoon-worthy styles to pick from next season. From bigwigs such as Christian Louboutin and Jimmy Choo, to more emerging brands such as Palm Angels and No. 21, men’s sneakers for fall ’16 are focused on luxe materials and playful detailing.
While none are available yet, it’s smart to begin planning next season’s purchases — in-demand sneakers are often the first thing to sell out, and yes, even the ones that cost upward of $1,000.
Top fashion houses continued to ramp up their sneaker offering. Louis Vuitton reworked its iconic monogram print in a sporty low-top style. Givenchy tapped the velvet trend in a orangey red high-top. Balmain used its signature quilting on a leather high-top with gold hardware.
Saint Laurent, whose sneaker business is booming, debuted playful motifs like glitter palm trees. Laurence Dacade’s first men’s collection offered a strong sneaker start via its rainbow suede treatment.
Even classic footwear brands infiltrated the sneaker scene. Berluti introduced a textural wool high-top, while Santoni went with fur lining and mixed leather combos.
