Pumped up kicks: Alexander McQueen takes oversized to the next station
Little introduction is needed to Alexander McQueen's Oversized Sneakers by now. They've done so well in infiltrating shoe arsenals that, for even those who don't own a pair, such ubiquity guarantees instant recognition. Its thick soles and contrasting heel tab, distinct from a mile away. At this point of critical mass, the British house is going one step further — well in the territory of chunky sneakers.
The Oversized Runner samples the silhouette of a trainer (a departure from its court predecessor) and, sports multiple panels on the upper — lending fall 2018's newcomer to boundless colour-blocking and patchwork possibilities. In its first release, exemplified in the four-hue colourways and multiple fabrications on a singular pair, below.
Available for men and women at Alexander Mcqueen boutiques and online e-tailers such as Farfetch.com.
