Acne are usually right on the cutting edge of all that is trendy, but we reckon they might be a little behind the eight ball with this one. Their recent show at Paris Fashion Week revealed their scheduled product for 2019, which included a hiking-styled sneaker.
The trend has been driven by the return of classic styles such as the adidas Seeulater in 2016, as well as modernised iterations like Nike’s Pocket Knife DM the following year. Acne’s new design doesn’t offer much in the way of new interpretations of this trend, but channels existing design elements into a high-fashion friendly shoe. Chunky tread, rap around lacing system and wavy sole — it ticks all the boxes.
Acne’s upcoming footwear designs won’t be hitting stores until 2019, so stay tuned.
