Charli XCX showed off her sneaker game on Wednesday in Los Angeles. The singer was seen leaving a gym, wearing a Nike workout ensemble that included a rare pair of Nike kicks.
Charli XCX chose Nike’s Comme des Garçons collaboration shoes, which originally released in June 2019. She paired the now sold-out white sneakers with a Swoosh sports bra and Nike biker shorts, and she accessorized with a pink ball cap, face mask and plastic gloves.
The Nike Shox TL Comme des Garçons first retailed for $350 and is now available on StockX for the lowest ask of $689.
The shoes, which debuted at Comme des Garçons spring ’19 Paris Fashion runway show, were a snag for any sneakerhead as the Nike Shox silhouette saw a reinterpretation. Designed with an all white-upper, the shoes feature tonal mesh overlays that are frayed around the seams and Swoosh. The style came with a removable chain, which Charli XCX went without for her outing.
Like Charli XCX, many celebrities are forgoing statement-making street style this summer, with the majority favoring comfortable, work-out ready looks. With nowhere to go, heels have certainly taken a backseat to sneakers.
In addition to Nike, New Balance is seeing a lot of love from stars such as Emily Ratajkowski, Zoe Kravitz and Eva Longoria. Brands such as Veja, Adidas and Salomon have also been a go-to for celebs working out or just looking for a comfortable shoe to walk in.
According to retailers, Hoka One One and On are among the most sought-after sneakers. Independent stores are seeing this business explode and grab market share from sport-inspired looks from core comfort names.
