Sneak of the Week Vol 5: Alexander McQueen Oversized Sneaker

WORDS BY JOSEPH FURNESS

 

MORE, MORE, MORE. You’re on the 212th floor of a skyscraper. You’re wearing an oversized hoodie. You’re drinking from a glass the size of a fishbowl. And you’re tapping on a tablet that’s as big as a small TV. In 2018, too much is never enough.

 

And, of course, Alexander McQueen saw it coming. Their oversized sneakers - a tennis plimsoll, balanced on a stack-soled base, are one of the original styles that kickstarted the trend for chunkier shapes. With so much sole to give, the acclaimed calf-leather sneakers really are everything you’ve hoped for, everything that you need...

Could you wear these on a date?

 

Yes. Nothing says cool, confident and in control of your life more than a pair of box-fresh Alexander McQueen sneakers. Also, your choice of heel colour can act as a subtle clue to your yet-to-be-revealed persona.

 

Could you wear these to the gym?

 

Platform sneakers at the gym? Maybe good for your balance. But there’s a real risk of falling off them.

Could you wear these on a night out?

 

With sole to spare, these sneakers are so comfy that they will have you dancing all night long (hit it Lionel).

What does my grandmother think of these?

 

“They look classy although they are a little plain. But they look as though they would clean up well. I know what you’re like with white trainers. xx”
