Square-toed heels may be trending this summer, but several fashion influencers chose the classic style of the pointy toe during Haute Couture Week instead.

But aside from killer heels, chunky-soled shoes like trainers and sandals had a huge presence on the streets.

The Acne Studios Bolzter W was one shoe that stood out in the crowd.

The luxury shoe, which retails for $540 online, made a splash at Couture Week. With its earthy colorways and resemblance of a hiking shoe, there’s no doubt that it’s a signifier of how outdoor style is influencing fashion and streetwear trends.

As luxury brands continue to push the envelope when it comes to evolving the dad shoe, we expect to see more trainers take on a more outdoor-oriented look like the Acne Studios Bolzter W.

While Haute Couture Week is regarded as high fashion, the continuing presence of sneakers in the luxury market and on the streets of Paris indicate that this shoe style isn’t going anywhere.
