The first pair in this assemblage is the “University Red/Black” option, and it’s without a doubt the louder iteration of the bunch. Uppers are once again formed with a premium leather, and come stylized with “University Red” toe boxes, overlays, tongues, laces and collars while notes of black show up on the Swooshes and the ankle buckles that are signature to the NY-based label. “1017 ALYX 9SM” branding makes its way to the lower lateral heels with a golden finish while the bottom units are also drenched in more red.

Achieving a slightly more understated ensemble, the kicks dye most of its leather base layers and sole pieces in solid black, and allow the “University Red” accents to splash onto the buckles and Swooshes. Like its launch partner, the 1017 ALYX 9SM notations also come dressed in gold.
