French high fashion house Lanvin has introduced a new sneaker dubbed the Bumper as part of its Spring/Summer 2020 collection. The first footwear silhouette conceptualized by new creative director Bruno Sialelli —- who came over from the menswear division at LOEWE earlier this year —- the Bumper is inspired by running shoes from the 1970s. This old-school vision serves for more than just classic shape, as it also influences the overall aged ethos present on the unisex design.

Presented in 7 colors that range from retro two-tone looks to bright greens and purples or stark monochrome styles, each pair features an upper comprised of premium nylon and leather. This sits on top of a triple-thick sole and a plastic heel “spoiler.” The tongue features a gold Lanvin logo for extra opulence, while further branded hits are embossed on the heel tab, engraved on the plastic heel piece and worked into the sole’s tread. Finishing touches of contrast are provided by the aforementioned burnished accents on the laces and midsole, which vary in style according to the colorway.

Furthering the formative running silhouette trend kicked off by the sacai x Nike LDWaffle and the UNDERCOVER x Nike Daybreak earlier this year, all 7 styles are available for pre-order via Lanvin’s web store now. The MSRP set at $550 USD for each pair, and the estimated shipping date for pre-orders is December 28.

Elsewhere in the realm of sumptuous shoes, Hiroshi Fujiwara‘s fragment design and Red Wing recently teamed up for a plush 4679 Moc Toe Boot.
