Fall 2016 Men’s Trend: Galaxy Print Sneakers

When all else fails, look up. Footwear designers looked to sky for fall ’16 inspiration, applying starry prints and electrifying finishes onto men’s sneakers.

Lightning bolts made an appearance on a number of designer sneaker styles. Fendi used a single electric bolt on its low-top runners. For her debut men’s collection, Laurence Dacade used a metallic lighting bolt on her color-blocked high-top.

Certain brands offer star motifs every season. Saint Laurent updated its star-printed sneaker with a black leather-high top, with stars stitched in an all-over treatment. Golden Goose also offered its signature star logo in a metallic gray suede.

Christian Louboutin went for a more abstract take on the trend. He used crystal embellishments on a velour and patent high-top, arranging them in a Bing Bang-style formation. Talk about starting the season with a bang.
