Sneakers have become an integral part of our shoe wardrobe and there is literally no going wrong with them. From making cameos at red carpets to parties to airports and more, sneakers are enjoying their major moment in fashion. The once upon a time sportswear accessory is now a go-to option to up the chic factor of any outfit given their modern appeal and versatility. Taking into account the rage around sneakers and people’s growing liking for street style, an increasing number of designer labels have been delving a little into street style, specifically sneakers, and the outcome? Some of the best sneaker collaborations of all time! 2019, in particular, was the year that sneakers shone the most. It’s, therefore, safe to say that sneakers are currently at the forefront of fashion. However, in that never-ending list of designer sneaker collaborations, we’ve got a few our favourite ones we can’t stop eyeing. Read on for more.
Make a statement with the glitter-drenched Converse x JW Anderson sneakers that were showcased on the spring/summer ’19 runways. The revamped styles include the classic Chuck Taylor 70s and JW Andersons‘ Run Star Hike. Love the choice of an all-poppy colour palette—yellow, red and pink.
Incorporate sustainability into anything and it automatically has everyone’s attention! New Balance launched its most sustainable sneakers in collaboration with the cult brand Reformation. The shoes are said to have a light footprint and infuse style with sustainability. The shoes come in five colour combinations and three sneaker styles X90, 997W and 574 that are crafted using all recycled materials.

We’ve teamed up with @NewBalance to make some sustainable sneakers with a super light footprint (pun intended). It’s exciting news, as we’re basically losing our virginity in the sneaker category, while these are also New Balance’s most sustainable sneakers yet. Here 10/10. Get on the list.
Is there any tie-dye item that isn’t instantly a best-seller? Kim Jones of Dior Homme collaborated with American artist Daniel Arsham and came up with the CD1 running sneaker that features the artist’s contemporary work. The shoe is made of smooth craftskin and technical mesh with the Dior logo imbibed on the outsole, the tongue and the insole.
Shoe and accessories brand Charlotte Olympia collaborated with sports brand Puma and dropped a line of athletic wear that highlighted Charlotte Olympia‘s signature elements like fringe detailing, spiderweb and more. The sneakers that came along with the line definitely have my full attention given the exotic leopard print.
Air Max 270 React which comes in an earthy colour palette features react cushioning. The Air Max which features Nike’s striking swoosh on its midfoot is given a minuscule appeal on the pollar fleece fabric. And given the collaboration with rapper Travis Scott, ‘Cactus Jack’, the name of his famous record label is imbibed on the insole of the shoes.
