First debuted during its Fall/Winter 2019 runway show, Matthew M. Williams and 1017 ALYX 9SM’s contemporary take on the classic Derby silhouette aptly revitalizes the classic salaryman footwear by means of a specially-designed removable Vibram sole.
In line with Williams’ collaborative Nike Free TR 3 SP sneaker, the newly released Lace-up Leather Sneakers from the designer’s riotous imprint features black leather in a smooth grain finish. Upon viewing the lacing system, a unique cut-out and underlay add to the shoe’s contemporary style, with more unique paneling viewable towards the shoe’s heel. Moving down the shoe, the chunky rubber sole can be seen doused in black and red, with contrasting high-shine panels featured on the heel portions. As is usual with the imprint, minimalistic branding has been employed, with the only visible logo being featured on the all-leather insole.
You can take a look at 1017 ALYX 9SM’s Lace-Up Leather Sneakers above. They are currently available via LN-CC’s webstore with a retail price set at $785 USD.
