The recent Fall/Winter 2018 runway shows have ushered a renewed focus on designer sneakers with bold models such as Margiela’s mega stompers and Balenciaga’s hiking-inspired runners. While the aforementioned shoes won’t be available to purchase for a while, Valentino‘s eccentric Heroes Tribe sneakers from its Spring/Summer 2018 collection has hit the shelves.
Valentino’s colorful sneakers are expertly made in Italy and feature breathable mesh and suede uppers, a sock-like fit and design elements inspired by both futurism and folklore. The intricate designs are accented by leather-wrapped tubular piping or luxe fringe trims, while a white sculptural sole unit gives an assertive sneaker look.
You can pick up the Valentino Spring/Summer 2018 Heroes Tribe sneakers at retailers such as MR PORTER now. Let us know if you’re a fan of these bold designs and also check out our roundup of shoes that could replace the Triple S.
