When it comes to street style, no outfit is complete without a pair of eye-catching kicks to round it all off. Taking to the streets of New York Fashion Week for this Spring/Summer 2023 season, show attendees showed up and showed out, bringing an additional flair to their fits.

Over the years, sneakers have become a staple in everyone’s rotations – including everything from the classic Nike Dunk High to more dad-shoe focused aesthetics that are derived from brands like Asics and New Balance. This season, style trends leaned towards comfort and vibrancy to match New York City’s famed hustle and bustle mentality. Sneakers continue to stand out as the top picks as street style footwear, most noticeably the Salomon Multicolor XT-4 and the YEEZY BOOST 700 V2 “Inertia”, which added a splash of color to the grundgy steets.

Balenciaga footwear appeared to have a major moment throughout the week, as fans leaned towards the many silhouettes released later this year to make a statement. In a shocking neon green, one show-goer caught the attention of the world with a pair of its Balenciaga x Crocs Pool Perforated Neon Rubber Slides. This year, the interest in Crocs has seen an incredible uptick, especially its collaboration with Balenciaga. The clogs aesthetic continues to take the industry by storm, becoming the comfy alternative to match any everyday outfit. Alongside the Crocs collab, the Balenciaga Defender and its X-Pander Mesh and Nylon sneakers proved to be a big hit as well.

Collaborative footwear has shown to be some of the most exciting pieces on the streets of NYC, this season. When it comes to these partnerships, COMME des GARÇONS has it on lock as some if its mostly highly anticipated collaborations were showcased by fans. The COMME des GARÇONS HOMME PLUS x Nike Air Foamposite One and its Nike Air Max Sunder SP made many appearances on the streets, as well as the highly discussed Prada x adidas Originals Superstar. Take a scroll above at some of the biggest footwear trends from this year’s NYFW SS23 street style.
