So what are the top luxury sneakers to keep your eye on? Our sneaker experts take a close look at the most popular sneaker brands and designs on the market.
What Are The Top Luxury Sneakers?
- Balenciaga Track Sneaker
- Versace Chain Reaction
- Maison Margiela Replica
- Gucci Ace Sneaker
- Alexander McQueen Oversized Sneaker
- Golden Goose Superstar
- Common Projects Achilles Low
1. Balenciaga Track Sneaker
Retail Price: $995 +
Balenciaga could be considered to have single-handedly put sneakers on the map. Instantly recognizable with its bold and iconic design, the Balenciaga Track sneaker is available in an array of colors, from bright pink to light blue.
The Track sneaker is arguably one of the most versatile shoes on the market. You can wear this shoe anywhere in the world, be comfortable, and considered well dressed. If you get your hands on this shoe be sure to check out the insole that comes in the shoe: it is made completely out of gel.
2. Versace Chain Reaction
Retail Price: $995 +
Versace is the latest luxury brand to throw their hat in the sneaker ring. Released in 2018, the Chain Reaction was designed by rapper 2Chainz in collaboration with Versace. It features an oversized chain pattern on the outsoles and the word LOVE in braille. One unique feature of this shoe is that the midsole foam is the same foam fellow sneaker brand, Yeezy uses in some shoes.
3. Maison Margiela Replica
Retail Price: $695 +
Maison Margiela was very crafty with their sneaker release and a tad humorous. The Replica sneaker took inspiration from a German army trainer commonly known as GATs. This is why the name “Replica” is somewhat tongue in cheek.
4. Gucci Ace Sneaker
Retail Price: $680 +
Gucci Ace sneakers became a classic and firm sneaker fan favorite the moment they came out in 2016. Similar to Mcqueen, Gucci never set out to make an iconic sneaker, it just happened. This casual footwear separates itself from the rest by adding the beloved Gucci Web to the side panels on the sneaker.
5. Alexander McQueen Oversized Sneaker
Retail Price: $500
Alexander McQueen launched in 2004 but did not start his line with sneakers in mind. This chunky shoe bears a striking resemblance to an Adidas Stan Smith, but the major difference is that it features an oversized platform midsole. This shoe played a crucial role in establishing sneakers as fashion items rather than sportswear.
6. Golden Goose Superstar
Retail price: $495 +
Venice, Italy is the birthplace of Golden Goose. Two young designers wanted a way of combining both modern and vintage. Golden Goose was long considered a celebrity shoe, because who else would want to pay high prices for a distressed shoe?
However, as of recently, more people have started to see beauty in this vintage-inspired, leather sneaker. The Superstar now comes in a variety of colors with many different embellishments available.
7. Common Projects Achilles Low
Retail price: $425 +
Common Projects arrived on the scene in 2004. The Achilles Low was designed by the founder, Prathan Poopat, an American Art director. Now a staple in many offices around the world, this is thanks to its minimal and clean aesthetic.
The gold etching on the back heel is the shoe’s signature, featuring the color code and size. As of recently, we have seen this shoe crossover from offices to the streets.
