If there is one footwear trend that unites Hedi Slimane and Maria Grazia Chiuri this season, it is their love for the high-top. For the former, the CT range of high-cut kicks let you emulate his brand of Left Bank rock ‘n’ roller flair. As for the latter, there is a sense of relaxed cool about the popular retro-inflected Walk’N’Dior sneakers.
In fact, Dior has introduced three new models for the aforementioned range for Cruise 2022. Christened the Walk’N’Dior Star, the style now comes with a more elongated profile and emblazoned with the ‘Dior Etoile’ star motifs as an ode to Monsieur Dior’s lucky star.
The Walk’N’Dior Star sneakers are available in tone-on-tone embossed white leather, alongside leather and technical-fabric.
Even for serious sneakerheads, some of the most anticipated releases this year come with a high-top aesthetic. Cue Air Jordan 1 Hi ’85 ‘Georgetown’ and Union LA x Air Jordan 2 ‘Grey Fog’ which we foresee making waves when they drop around April.
Meanwhile, we share 14 pairs of high-top sneakers to cop.
