THE MINIMAL MID-TOP
Like Storm Troopers for your feet, Maison Margiela’s paired-back mid-tops are the future
Nike’s Air Force 1 high-top has gone under the knife this season. A deep burgundy leather augmentation has the original baller looking all grown-up, but also check out updated originals such as Diadora’s N9000 and Nike’s Air Max collaboration with Commes des Garcons Garçons Homme Plus.

THE CHUNKY UPGRADE
Alessandro Michele’s Gucci Rhyton sneaker is selling fast. Don’t overlook Alexander McQueen’s lo-fi, hi-soled take on chunky either.
Bilal wears suit jacket by Dsquared2, jacket (worn underneath) by Dsquared2, sweater by Off-White from Julian Fashion, belt bag by Martine Rose from ANSH46 and Rhyton sneakers by Gucci from L'Eclaireur.
THE HI-GRADE HIGH TOP
With a cotton upper and thick rubber sole, Cinzia Araia’s sneakers traverse the Converse/AF-1 high-top blueprints perfectly. If you want to swap out the cotton upper with leather without losing the silhouette then take a deep dive into this season’s collections by Rick Owens, Giuseppe Zanotti and Y-3.
Chad wears coat by Pringle of Scotland, sweater by Raf Simons from Browns, shirt by Etro from Bernardelli, trackpants by adidas from Spazio Pritelli, belt by Y-3 from Hervia Bazaar, socks by Heron Preston and Cinzia Araia hi-tops from Jade.
THE BOXFRESH WHITES
Grass stains aside, nothing beats the simplicity of a pair of pure white sneakers. Futuristic slip-on styles are an upgrade on the classic Stan Smith. Look to Maison Margiela, Common Projects, Buscemi and Givenchy.
Bilal wears T-shirt by Prmtvo from Browns, trousers by Raf Simons from ANSH46 and sneakers by Off-White from Casa Frumoasa.
