One of the key takeaways from the Spring/Summer 2019 Fashion Month is the sheer volume of collaborative footwear that emerged at the shows. Revamped Birkenstocks at Rick Owens and knee-high Converse at Marine Serre were only two of the eye-grabbing shoes reworked for the runway. HYPEBAE selected the 5 best collaborative silhouettes from the combined Fashion Weeks at New York, Milan and Paris, showcasing women’s footwear redesigned by the likes of Matthew Adams Dolan, John Elliott, UNDERCOVER, COMME des GARÇONS and Off White™.

COMME des GARÇONS x Nike Shox

GIO STAIANO/NOWFASHION

COMME des GARÇONS is no stranger to unusual running shoes, having already launched the platform Cortez and sparkly Night Track earlier this year. For Spring/Summer 2019, the long-running Japanese label introduced a pair of monochrome Nike Shox, elevated with branded gold chains. A stramlined body, a CdG logo on the tongue and 3D seams differentiate the throwback runner from its 18-year-old predecessor.

John Elliott x Nike Blazer Mid Rebel

John Elliott

A variety of collaborative footwear hit the halfpipes for John Elliot‘s Spring/Summer 2019 presentation, including a twist on the “1 Reimagined”‘s Blazer Mid Rebel. The classic Nike basketball shoe is revamped with twisting tongues, dangling tags and visible stitching. A quartet of distinctive hues — “Blackened Blue,” “Black,” “Guava Ice” and “Natural Olive” — tie in with the disparate color palette utilized for Elliott’s seasonal range.

UNDERCOVER x Nike Waffle Racer

PAUL JEONG/HYPEBAE, UNDERCOVER

Nike can’t get enough of Jun Takahashi‘s creative reworks, joining the UNDERCOVER designer for elevated React Element 87 models and Converser Chuck Taylor All Stars. For Spring/Summer 2019, the duo reunite for a selection of souped-up Waffle Racers. The classic Nike silhouette now sports a green/red makeover, accented by a 3D “fin” on the rear and UNDERCOVER-branded speckle midsole.

Matthew Adams Dolan x Reebok Sole Fury

MATTHEW ADAMS DOLAN

Low-key New York Fashion Week favorite Matthew Adams Dolan tapped Reebok for Sole Fury sneakers that contrasted neatly with his color-blocked Spring/Summer 2019 range. The technical runner, one of the first to utilize Reebok’s Split Cushioning technology in the ’90s, dissects the midsole to make for a lighter running experience, with striking pops of yellow adding visual flair to the bi-color monochrome shoe.

Off White™ x Nike React Vapor Street Flyknit

MANDY KAN/HYPEBEAST

Unsurprisingly, Virgil Abloh and Nike joined forces once again for a graphic-heavy take on a cutting-edge running shoe. This time, the Off-White™ designer debuted the React Vapor Street Flyknit at his “Track & Field” Spring/Summer 2019 runway presentation. Living up to the collection’s theme, the new sneaker utilizes spikes on its sole to make for a grippy ride, with unmistakable yellow accents adding further contrasting details to the translucent upper.
