Here Are All of the Fashion Collections Inspired by This Weekend’s Formula 1 Race in Miami

The influence of motorsport, and Formula 1 in particular, on sports and streetwear culture has significantly increased in recent years. In fact, Formula 1 has seen a sharp rise in popularity in recent years, with its fanbase becoming younger and more diverse. Cumulative TV audiences have also grown to reach 1.5 billion viewers, according to ESPN, and race attendance also reached record levels in 2022, with the sport continuing to grow on social media.

Below, discover the brands that are celebrating the upcoming Formula 1 race in Miami this weekend and beyond.

Athletic Propulsions Labs (APL) has inked a new partnership deal with Formula One team Oracle Red Bull Racing. The partnership will see APL join the charge as the team’s athletic footwear partner as it fires up for its 2023 defense of both the Formula 1 Drivers’ and Constructors’ Championships.

What’s more, Formula One world champion Max Verstappen, grand prix- winning team-mate Sergio “Checo” Perez, as well as trackside team personnel debuted exclusive APL x Oracle Red Bull Racing footwear at the Bahrain GP in March.

“Over the seasons to come we will debut multiple shoes with the team that are built in a collaborative manner to fit the needs of the F1 season and deliver the fans an amazing on-foot experience,” Adam and Ryan Goldston, co-founders of APL, said in a joint statement. “In addition to in-line official team shoes, we will also have exciting limited releases around key moments, races, and victories. This partner- ship was a natural fit because both brands have so many synergies, starting with the desire to always push the limits of what’s possible, and that’s exactly what we will do together over the years to come.”

K-Swiss and McLaren Racing — after announcing a multiyear partnership in July 2022 — will release three collaborative collections throughout the year, with the first dropping earlier this week.

The well-known Tubes technology in the form of the Tubes Sport shoe is the highlight of the collection, which K-Swiss explained was included due to its “comfort, cushioning and performance qualities.” This was a necessity, K-Swiss said, for the team of race car engineers who are on their feet for 12-plus hours a day and was executed with insights from McLaren Racing in order to meet the team’s specific needs. Because of this, Tubes have become the official 2023 team footwear for all McLaren Racing mechanics, engineers and VIP staffing.

Aside from Tubes, K-Swiss and McLaren Racing worked on heritage and lifestyle looks, which was meant to offer fans a little of everything when paired with the performance styles. These include the SI-18 Ultrashot, the Classic VN and more.
