For its 2019 spring/summer edition of Geobasket sneakers, Rick Owens has updated the cult favorite silhouette with some subtle touches. The shoes adopt a black calf leather upper with seven eyelets that incorporate both laces and side zippers for quicker fastening while sitting atop chunky translucent shark-tooth outsoles. Hits of orange on the geometric side panels along with black stitching details and lengthy threads further accent the hybrid piece of footwear and breaths new life to a classic. Lastly the shoes also feature a unique graphic just below the pull tabs on the tongues to add an extra layer of effect.

The Rick Owen’s 2019 spring/summer “Babel” Geobasket sneakers are now available to purchase at the brand’s own website for $1,560 USD. For more on Rick Owens, take a look through our backstage coverage from its 2019 fall/winter Paris Fashion Week showing.
