For a newer luxury fashion brand, navigating one’s way into the treacherous (but possibly highly lucrative) waters of designer sneakers can be difficult. Most brands seek to update a familiar silhouette with bizarre or expensive materials in order to call it their own. Rick Owens, on the other hand, brings his personal, highly structural goth aesthetic to these kicks without any regard for tradition. Dubbed the “Turbo Geo Basket” Sneakers, the completely blacked-out sneakers resemble boots in their proportions and choice of material (full premium leather) and feature a zip-off “basket” styled front detail. Fans of the chunky, avant-garde kicks can get them now for $1,229 USD through ink.
