Louis Vuitton has never known for sneakers. Perhaps, that will change with Virgil Abloh’s involvement? Likely. Perhaps starting with the Louis Vuitton Chunky “Zig Zag” Skate Shoes.

Nike Gives Its Iconic Swoosh Logo A New Look On Air Max 1

The highly recognizable and iconic Nike swoosh logo has a makeover which I didn’t think was possible. The sportswear giant has been rebooting some of its iconic models, giving them new-look logos, or simply bestowing them with new designs and materials. The Nike Air Max you see here is one of the latest to get one or both treatments. The most noticeable would be the new embroiled swoosh that looks like as if it is in motion, at speeds.

This Is Gumshoe, The First Sneakers To Have Soles Made From Chewing Gums

Chewing gum and street cleanliness have never seen eye-to-eye. It is a social problem that many cities have put up with. There is only one country in the world that took drastic measure to curb the gum litter problem and that’s Singapore. Singapore has banned the sale of chewing gum for as long as I can remember. Not every countries have this iron clad rule, but that does not mean they are OK with it. One city has decided that gum litter problem is very real and they did something rather odd in hope that people will take heed of this sticky issue.

Meet Wado, The Ethical And Sustainable 80s-inspired Sneakers

Recently, a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter peddling sustainable shoes from a Spaniard startup piqued our interest. Now, sustainable footwear is not new, but if you look around, they are often quite pricey and that is one of the reason why we are drawn to the Wado Sustainable Sneakers. And being a person who grew up in the 80s, Wado sure has my attention because, it is has a very 80s vibe to it. The company’s first sneaker, MODELO 89, features a retro shape and colors quite often seen on footwear of the 80s, particularly tennis shoes.

Balenciaga Elevates Crocs To High Fashion By Adding Platform To Them

Just when we thought putting precious rocks on Crocs was outrageous, Balenciaga shows us that Christopher Kane’s idea might be way too tame. The Parisian fashion label has, yet again, outdone itself in loud fashion and this time, it has turned out platform version of the worst thing to happen to footwear, Crocs. Yes. Believe it. Crocs on wedge is a thing. Honestly, I don’t know what to make of it. Rightly I shouldn’t because, I am no lady. Perhaps, ladies in the house would like to comment below? Anyways, by giving Crocs platform or wedge, Balenciaga essentially branded the once-unisex footwear as a single-sex fashion item.

Balenciaga Makes Dirty A Fashion With Balenciaga Triple S Sneakers

You know what? Balenciaga has quickly become the designer-label-we-love-feature because, in recent years, its products have, in recent years, never failed to leave us bewildered. From its iteration of the cheap Chinese travel bag to the blatant copy of Ikea’s Frakta bag to car mat skirt, we had some laughs. The brand shows no sign of stopping either, now joining Gucci in turning up dirty sneakers as a fashion statement. Sorry. We shouldn’t insult it by saying it is ‘dirty’ (though the truth is, it is); it should be called ‘distressed’. Our bad.
