Following his recent release of Bozo Rubber Chelsea Boots, American designer Rick Owens continues to experiment with textures and materials for his latest DRKSHDW release: quilted color-blocked sneakers.

Taking on a familiar muted color palette, Owens’ DRKSHDW collection remains an easy-to-wear reimagined version of his main line. Experimenting with a black quilted upper and an eye-catching yellow rubber midsole, Owens has crafted a stand-out sneaker through panelled color blocking and experimenting with construction techniques. The sneakers are completed with a round toe and a flat heel to create a slip-on style.

The Rick Owens DRKSHDW quilted color-block sneakers are available now from Farfetch, retailing at £355 (approximately $460 USD).

In other news, Gucci’s new Ace sneakers have arrived in an understated “Triple Black” colorway.
