Heron Preston has shown hiking influences throughout his sneakers since he initially debuted the category, having first released his “Security” model just last summer. As the designer continues to experiment in the footwear space — he also houses collaborations with Nike and UGG in his vault — he’s continued his trail references, recently releasing his Protection Low-Top Sneakers for Spring/Summer 2020.

The shoes were first seen at the label’s runway show last June, and are defined by their multilayered design. A thick rubber overlay is placed across the upper (seen above in both black and white colorways), concealing the toe box and signature orange Heron Preston label. In alignment with the style name, the drawstring lacing system adds even more “protection” to the style by helping to ensure a snug closure. It’s then finished off with pull loops at the heel and a chunky rubber sole.

Priced at $300 USD, Heron Preston’s Protection Low Top Leather Sneakers in Black and White are available now at select retailers such as Browns.

For brighter footwear option, check out Converse’s recent pink-drenched Chuck Taylors.
