Dior Homme brings back a classic sneaker with something borrowed and something new
Does the new you in 2018 include goals of smarter spending, cleaner eating, and regular gym sessions? Have you, the chronic sneakerhead, filed "fewer footwear purchases" under the objective to spend less? We're well aware that two days into the year begs too soon to flout any resolutions, but here's one potentially worthy of exception.
The B01, a Dior Homme classic notable by its elongated suede cap toe, returns kitted out with a new rubber memory sole and quilted tongue in name of comfort. It takes cues from American track athlete Jesse Owens' 1936 Olympic sneaker by the Dassler brothers, infused with Dior spirit by way of the house motif (the bee) upon its heel. Its body, rendered in green, navy, black, red or white leather, is sleeker than before — the shoe's original contrasting side stripe replaced by understated perforation.
To do the deed, or to resist? Decide below.
Available at Dior Homme boutiques from January 2018.
