If you’re looking for the most luxurious sneakers on the scene, Pitti Uomo is the place to be. The Florence, Italy-based trade show, which wraps tomorrow, offered a bevy of new men’s sneakers to take in this week. And we’re rounding up the standout styles.
Swiss luxury brand Bally debuted a small capsule collection of archival sneakers for spring ’18. It brought back four styles: the Competition, Galaxy, Super Smash and Vita-Parcours (seen below).
Special guest designers hosted runway shows at Pitti Uomo this season, and there were plenty of new sneakers there, too. At J.W. Anderson’s spring ’18 show, the label debuted a collaboration with Converse. The partnership includes new takes on the iconic Converse Chuck Taylor style, including a tritone glitter style (seen below).
Meanwhile, Hugo Boss’ spring runway show includes paint-splattered low-tops with chunky rubber soles. At PS Paul Smith’s presentation, low-top sneakers had multicolored rainbow stripes. Christian Louboutin debuted a new sneaker style, the Aurelien, which is inspired by 1990s basketball style.
