The classic white-sneakers may still be a trend…. in Nova Scotia, but that is not stopping Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele from going ham with the color and design options for the lowtop athleisure Ace sneakers.
Part of the Gucci Pre-Fall 2016 Collection, the Italian made shoes have leather uppers and rubber soles. And, will be available with the rest of the collection in May.
The many color and graphic variations for the shoe’s colorways feature the new Gucci-bee, expertly utilized in different motifs. The buzzing Gucci bee was introduced in the fall of 2015 by the creative director who says the bee for him is “charming yet potent.”
Nike designers must be pretty bored these days. The shoe manufacturer has put on display in an exhibit their idea of what the future holds for sneakers. Some of these may seem pretty outrageous, but it seems Nike designers actually attempted to rationalize their design decisions. The upper part of all these designs is made using Nike’s new “Flyknit” fabric, which stretches and flexes around the foot, allowing for expanded movement.
For the sneaker above, the reasoning behind it according to Nike is, “Taking inspiration from voluminous ’80s hair, this vibrant experiment in sectional cushioning turns a variety of Velcro hair rollers into a modular and, therefore, fully customizable tooling system that can be adjusted to the wearer’s preferred shoe density, height and weight.”
The designs are for The Nature of Motion, a Nike exhibition at Milano Design Week 2016
