Kanye finds a way to re-imagine the ultra luxurious kicks in a new fashion; He combines the decadent with the modern. The offspring is the classically loved shoe with a twist, The 2014 Maison Martin Margiela.

Perhaps you’re more into “black on black,” and you like to exercise smart restraint. Not to worry, the creators of Public School (and CFDA Award winning) Dao- Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne, have a creation to better suit your palette. The duo takes their penchant for premium leather and conceives the Leather Nubuck Creeper; A conservative and awe- inspiring sneaker, composed of all leather and EVA soles.

If modernity is your thing, the bold designs from Kid Cudi x Giuseppe Zanotti might pique your interest, however. The High Top 2015 Hybrid Sneaker is donned with red-quilted Nappa leather (and is arguably the most futuristic design we’ve ever seen).
