We live in a world where everyone carries a touchscreen super computer in their pocket and hoverboards actually exist so it’s safe to say that the future is here. There is no telling what is to come but cheap jeremy scott will forever be remembered as the man who made winged Adidas as commonplace as wingtips and that is as much a milestone as any.
It’s hard to make a pair of sneakers with giant wings hanging off the side of them subtle so Scott goes for full-on garish with this current colorway. The pair is given a shimmering leather upper for this liquid silver look with accents such as the laces and seams settling in tonally. Not just anyone can pull these high gloss stunners off but if you think you can, they are available now.
In the last few years, chic sweats and rare running shoes have become style staples for fashion insiders and trend-hoppers worldwide, so it’s no surprise that high fashion is increasingly prominent in athletic-wear. The big names—Nike, Puma, and jeremy scott adidas—all carry collaborative collections with major designers (Adidas alone featuring lines by industry superstars like Yohji Yamamoto, Rick Owens, Raf Simons, and cheap jeremy scott, not to mention Kanye West), but most of these collabs are pure sportswear offerings. You’d be surprised to see a pair of Nike x Fragment tennis shoes on the court, and even Yamamoto’s sporty Y-3 tights and technical outwear isn’t meant to be used as true performance gear.
Of course, working out doesn’t seem to be going out of fashion anytime soon, and now more than ever traditional brands and upstarts are mixing serious style with real performance. (Even the NFL, which just approved Yeezy cleats for use in games, is getting with the program.) Whether you’re dying to style on your fellow Equinox-goers, or if a little fashion is all you need to stick with that New Year’s fitness resolution, here are five designer athletic lines that will help you on your way.
