Style Recap: Sneaker Takeaways from MFW FW19

Date: February 26 2019

By: Sebastian Bugeja-Drinkell


Burberry and Vivienne Westwood ruled the catwalk at London Fashion Week, while those who attended rocked an array of colours and major heat on their feet. And while there were only a few sneakers on show at the recent events in both London and NY, Milano was destined to bring an array of fresh high-end kicks onto the runway in order to take the illustrious Fashion Week crown.

Gucci showed up with some major chunk, and GCDS came through with even more. While slimmer silhouettes came out of Sportmax and Roberto Cavalli, while Prada played it sneaky with a technical boot.

Be careful, you may get burnt, because Milano brought some major heat.

Chunky but Funky

Gucci once again came through with a number of kicks that tickle the fancy of any high-end sneaker head. The one that caught our eye was a chunky but funky kick riddled with Gucci branding, and containing major maximalism vibes.

Even More Chunk...

If you were getting excited looking at those Gucci joints, then looking at what GCDS had to offer will give you heart palpitations. Multiple colourways of a massive skate-inspired sneaker which looked like the Osiris D3 with an exaggerated tongue was shown. If you were a fan of chunky skate shoes, and have the cash to splash, keep your eyes peeled for these.

Sneakers and Tailored Suits

Sleek silhouettes in sharp colours is what Roberto Cavalli likes to deliver. And the one sneaker that the Italian designer sent down the runway blended in perfectly with the collection of perfectly tailored suits and high quality leather dress shoes.

The Perfect Boot to Sneak Snacks into the Movies

If you're trying to sneak your favourite snacks into the movies while still looking fly, then Prada have the answer to your prayers. The heritage Milanese fashion house sent a tall sneaker-boot down the catwalk featuring small compartments throughout, plus a rugged sole.

Sportmax Got Extra Sporty

Sportmax hit the ground running, debuting a multitude of colourways of slim performance-inspired silhouettes. Sock-like uppers create a sleek look, going against the grain of chunky dad-centric trends.

Some Trends are Here to Stay

The attendees of Milan Fashion Week hit the streets, dressed to impress, and put their best shoes on feet ready to parade from show to show.

After seeing what New York and London had to offer, Milan wasn't really any different — dad shoes and high end kicks ruled the streets and, from what we can see, they aren't going anywhere anytime soon.
