1 – Maison Margiela – Painted Runner Sock Sneakers in White
Convention is a word that does not exist in Margiela’s headquarters; whilst they may not be a traditional sportswear brand, they have certainly re-designed the sock sneaker into a much more versatile style as seen below. The level of detail on the shoes is astounding; the cracked detailing and the paint effect sole makes this an instant classic.

Raf Simons’ coveted collaboration with Adidas continues for SS17 with this hi-top Matrix Spirit style, featuring a cracked version of Raf Simons’ brand logo and a lightweight canvas material.

4 – Rick Owens x Adidas – Level Runner Sneaker in Black
Rick Owens is one just a few luxury designers working with Adidas to push the limitations of traditional sports sneakers.
