Sneakerheads could do anything to get the best pairs in town. However, Balenciaga is taking sneaker fever a bit too far. The brand recently listed an over-the-top version of the distressed shoe for a ridiculous price of $1850. Yes, it’s true!


Sold as part of the brand’s new campaign, the shoes are simply meant to suggest that the new Paris sneakers “are meant to be worn for a lifetime”. However, why they are on actual sale is still unknown.


There are nearly 100 “dirty and destroyed” pairs up for grabs in black and white hues. And while they’re not so tattered that they can’t be worn, we’d be surprised to see anyone pay the asking price.

Appalled by the sneakers, GQ France editor Pam Boy said: “The message is clear: buy and keep forever. “Demna will get people who can afford luxury items to buy ‘pre-worn’ looking trainers for €1,450. It completely upsets the essence of luxury.

He added: “It’s the opposite of a sybaritic mindset, and again it mocks people who will indeed spend minimum wage on items they might deem disposable and 2. that seem without value. Is a luxury house the right medium for this message? I do not know. But I hate loving him.

Would you spend $1850 on these worn-out Balenciaga wonders?

Asian American basketball photographer Koolmac has finally fulfilled his dream of designing his own Jordan sneakers.

Cameron Look, who goes by the name “Koolmac” on Instagram, posted photos Monday to showcase the boba tea-inspired Air Jordan 36 Low sneakers he designed in collaboration with the Jordan Brand.

Speaking to NextShark, Koolmac said discussions on the project began in late 2021: “It certainly took time, but it was worth the wait. The creative process is always fun.

“I worked in Nike retail for three years and dreamed of a day like this,” Koolmac wrote in a post. Instagram post start the shoes.

The new shoes feature a matcha color scheme and tapioca ball circles on the insoles and mudguards. The sneakers also have “Matcha Matcha Man” text on their volt strips.

For the finishing touch, the kicks feature the iconic Jumpman logo on the left shoe tongue and a boba tea cartoon character on the right.

“Through experiences and relationships, I learn to bring my ideas to life. My loved ones know the hours I spend, the miles I travel and the time I sacrifice away from my loved ones,” the photographer continued in his post.

“Sometimes I feel guilty and conflicted, but I believe we are changing the world. To everyone who supports me, my photography, my products and my story, this is for you. Yes, we have, but there is still a lot to do.

On Sunday, Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum was spotted shaking the Footwear designed by Koolmac during his team’s Game 1 against the Milwaukee Bucks in the NBA Playoffs Eastern Conference Semifinals.

“I’ve built a strong relationship with Jayson over the past four years when he’s been training in Los Angeles in the offseason with Drew Hanlen. It’s been great to see the trajectories of our careers since we met in 2018. We both respect each other as masters of our crafts,” Koolmac told NextShark.

“Given that background, Jayson was of course the perfect person to launch the shoe. The colorway was perfect as he plays for the Boston Celtics and the timing couldn’t have been better considering these are both the NBA playoffs and AAPI Heritage Month.

Koolmac also shared that he was on a mission to break stereotypes about “what it means to be a photographer.”

“Four years ago the market for creative sports photography didn’t even exist,” he told NextShark. “I’ve been blessed to inspire other creatives and Asian Americans around the world through my craft. I may have a camera with me, but I’m also an artist, a designer , a storyteller and much more.I never wanted to be anyone’s “photographer”, I always wanted to be part of the family.

When Teigen rocks an alluring cutout dress or supple suede boots, we’re instantly intrigued by the trends. And when Oprah publicly declares her love for a brand, our ears immediately perk up. So when both women give something their stamp of approval, you might as well plug in our shipping address and credit card number without seeing them.

the Cravings cookbook author, 35, stepped out in the APL (Athletic Propulsion Labs) Techloom Bliss knit running shoe, which is one of the brand’s bestsellers – and the exact pair that made the cut of Oprah’s exclusive list. The sneakers are made with lightweight yet durable fabric and cushioned, supportive soles for all-day wear.

Buy it! APL Techloom Bliss Knit Running Shoe in Black/White, $220; nordstrom.com

Oprah called these kicks “casual enough for a workout but dressy enough for a post-squat lunch,” and we couldn’t have described them better ourselves. Teigen has trusted her comfy APL sneakers (she prefers the black and white pair) not only during workouts, but also for family time at Disneyland, taking a hit at carnival games and strolling around New York and Los Angeles.

APL not only offers high-end running shoes — all of which are vegan and come in dozens of colors, by the way — but also supportive slides, another brand specialty. The Satin Slide sandals, available in four pastel shades, feature a mesh footbed and plush midsole for maximum comfort in hot weather. It’s only a matter of time before Teigen is spotted in a pair of APL sandals like these.

To commemorate the young woman, her mother, Vanessa Bryant and Nike launched sneakers called “Mambacita Sweet 16” . Through a post on her Instagram account, Vanessa explained: “This year is very special. Sweet 16 marks the passage to adulthood. Gigi has always been wiser than her age, spreading joy and kindness around her and proving that basketball was more than just a sport. It was friendship. It was family. The ‘Mambacita Sweet 16’ are inspired by his resilient spirit and the love he had, not just for the game, but for his family, friends and community.”

The sneakers have a design that simulates the skin of a black viper, the brand’s dove in white and the number 2 (the one she used) in gold. Additionally, Gigi’s name appears on one shoe and Kobe’s on the other; on the soles, the sneakers have the design of a number 2 with a halo and angel wings.

The “Mambacita Sweet 16” are the first shoes designed by Nike after the renewal of the contract between the brand and the family of the famous basketball player. A limited number of pairs have been released on $180 on May 1 and could only be purchased by SNKRS members of the application who have been selected as winners in a lucky draw. The shoes sold out in two minutes and like all merchandise bearing the Gigi Bryant name, proceeds will be used to support children and young athletes.

During yesterday’s game between the Golden State Warriors and the Memphis Grizzlies, the player Jonathan Kuming wore tennis shoes.

Natalia Bryant was spotted in Venice, Calif., in a casual-chic look that she shared with her Instagram fans on Thursday.

The daughter of the late Kobe Bryant stood in front of an intersection on Venice Beach, overlooking traffic lights and scenic views at night. Posing for a series of photos, the star can be seen smiling at the camera.

Bryant donned a red sweater with an oversized fit and white details on the back. The crew neck was fire engine red and had long, almost puffy sleeves. The former basketball star’s daughter also wore a pair of blue jeans with a loose mom fit, as the silhouette became popular for its comfort and carefree appearance.

Over his shoulder, Bryant carries a beige Dior satchel with a “CD” monogram on the handle in gold hardware. The satchel has become a hot item among celebrities for its interesting shape and numerous colors and patterns. It seems beyond the bag, Bryant is keeping the accessories to a minimum, letting his outfit speak for itself.

The set is simple and comfortable, perfect for an evening exploring the Venice region.

On her feet, Bryant stepped into clean white sneakers with no platform. The shoes had a rounded toe and white laces. The clean white color with the blue jeans and red crew neck creates a simple yet pleasing color palette. The sneakers are almost blindingly white, contrasting with the deep blue of the pants. White sneakers like these are also a closet staple for their versatility.

Further LV details have been added with gold Louis Vuitton script on the lateral side.

The LV Trainer sneakers were designed by the late artistic director of Louis Vuitton, Virgil Abloh. LV sneakers were first released in 2018 when the then creative director for menswear created his first Louis Vuitton sneaker design.

Virgil Abloh was inspired by a pair of vintage basketball sneakers. Thus, the LV Trainer gives an aesthetic that is both retro and innovative in the eyes of sneakerheads. The shoes incorporate many of LV’s signatures and are made with exceptional Italian craftsmanship.

Virgil described them in a press release issued by the company:

“The idea is to detect chic. I think culture is an inexhaustible source of absolute beauty. So I try to create things that are current, current, timeless, but of exceptional quality,” said Virgil Abloh.

The LV Trainer combines contemporary, timeless style with exceptional craftsmanship. The sneakers are made in Louis Vuitton’s Fiesso d’Artico workshops in Italy. LV sneakers are also made in boot-style, mid-top and low-top fits.

Kate Hudson rocks a relaxed rock star vibe in a set of photos shared to Instagram today that showed her singing alongside a band and film crew as she teases a surprise.

In the caption of the video, Hudson writes that she is working on releasing an album.

Hudson opted to wear a white tank top with a low neckline paired with loose-fitting gray track pants that had tie-dye hits on each leg in a darker, contrasting shade of neutrals.

Synonymous with the hippie counterculture movement of the 60s and 70s, tie-dye evokes the psychedelic, carefree vibes of fashion. The DIY model regained some style in the 1990s before disappearing again until around mid-2019. Tie-dye designs differ in how the fabric is twisted, folded or crumbled, with the iconic tie-dye swirl being one of the most popular designs.

The “Almost Famous” star wore two stacks of silver bracelets on her arms for a touch of glimmer and shine.

Platform sneakers founded its casual-chic appearance. The shoes were about 3 inches tall and matched the color scheme of her attire.

When it comes to Hudson’s style, she tends to gravitate towards sophisticated and polished silhouettes. For example, she recently donned a matching dark denim ensemble consisting of a long-sleeved crop top paired with a matching skirt while slipping on a pair of hot pink sandals by Stuart Weitzman, for whom she is the brand ambassador. Last month, she wore a purple halter neck mini dress by Valentino coordinated with cream-colored platform pumps and a purple $2,850 Valentino Garavani VLOGO Rockstud Mix-Leather Chain shoulder bag for a vibrant ensemble.

Click through the gallery to see how Hudson’s street style has changed from 2004 to today.

Who needs Google Maps? Travelers soon to Tokyo may to carry a map of the city’s metro network, thanks to the latest collaboration from sneaker brand Asics and boutique Atmos.

The duo co-designed a limited-edition Sport Style GEL-LYTE III OG they call “TYO SUBWAY.” An official map by Tokyo-based Ogikubo, Tokyo Cart Graphic covers the sneaker’s premium leather upper, while TYO (the city, for short) and Tokyo Tower are embroidered on the inner toe and the tongue.

The Tokyo Metro is the busiest rail system in the world.

This isn’t the first time the GEL-LYTE III OG has boasted map art. In 2018, there was the GEL-LYTE III world map, which squeezed the entire planet into a sneaker. Because the Earth is 71% water, however, this sneaker looked blue – but the classic classroom globe was blue instead, which was bold, but also antique. The NYC SUBWAY version passed for white and featured an embroidered apple and NYC text on the tongue. The TYO SUBWAY Edition is a sneaker that also looks mostly white from a distance.

Lost in Tokyo? Look down (and very, very close).

Courtesy

Up close, however, it’s covered in colored lines. They run over the upper of the sneaker and are true to the real Tokyo subway. Intersections actually exist, and stops and stations are labeled. Additionally, the outsole and toe logo, perhaps unintentionally, nods to Tokyo’s first subway line, the Orange Line (or 3), which opened in 1927. whether you wear them or not – of course you should – they are an interesting collectible to say the least.

“We wanted to create a project based on common traits shared between the cities where Atmos is based – Tokyo and New York. Thus, the decision for the ‘subway’ theme also incorporates the respective route maps”, Nampo Mitsushiro, buyer and designer for atmos japan, said. “‘TYO SUBWAY’ uses a road map representing the entire Tokyo metropolitan area on the upper, with the Yamanote line in the center. Additionally, the midsole and laces have been designed in a vintage ivory tone, taking inspiration from vintage /recycled. trend that has been making the rounds of the sneaker scene in recent years.”

What do Dame Helen Mirren, professional longboard surfer Kelia Moniz and Robert Downey, Jr. have in common? As well as being award-winning talents, they all wore Brazilian brand Cariuma’s eco-friendly OCA Low sneakers (and under $100). And in honor of Earth Day, certified B Corp is releasing its best-selling kicks in two new colorways – so if you haven’t found the often sold-out shoes yet, now’s your chance to get them and get an extra benefit for the planet.

Made from organic cotton and recycled canvas, the $89 shoes come in an exclusive shade of bright green or sand (they’re also available for $79 in other colors). The eyelets are made from a bio-based material and the outsole is made from Cariuma’s new Bloom rubber, a lightweight and renewable material made from algae. Inside there is a comfortable, padded insert of sustainable cork and mamona (an organic, plant-based alternative to petroleum.) They are finished with the line “Stand Up for Mother Earth” to remind wearers of their impact on the world every time. step they take.

Although Cariuma typically plants two trees in the Brazilian rainforest for every pair sold, the company increases that number to 10 for products purchased through April 30. The brand says these efforts are helping to “restore the biodiversity and carbon sequestration potential” of the Amazon ecosystem, where deforestation has left less than 13% of the forest floor intact.

Mirren wore a green pair of OCA Low Top sneakers last year at the Cannes Film Festival, and other Hollywood stars who have entered Cariuma include Pete Davidson (who wore a black pair of the brand’s IBI shoes on Saturday Night Live), Jon Hamm, Naomi Watts and Noah Centineo.

Ethically produced shoes are shipped in recycled packaging and Cariuma meets certifications from the Global Organic Textile Standard, Oeko-Tex, FSC, Leather Working Group, OCIA International and other organizations.

The shoe brand‘s popular OCA shoes once had a waiting list of 26,000 people. For the Earth Day colourway, the brand is only producing the number of pairs ordered to avoid excessive waste, so if you need a new pair of shoes, you can shop the limited-edition shoes for women and men online. on the Cariuma website here.
