Well, Looks Like I’m Buying Vivienne Westwood Sneakers


It was a warm Monday in July when I found love. Vivienne Westwood, known among her legions of disciples as “good sis Viv,” has lent her vision once again to oft-overlooked athletic wear label Asics. And boy, are we sold. 

 

The new GEL-saga sneaker is the shared dream of any fashionista, footwear fanatic or hypebeast. It features a cleanly classic leather upper with the British designer’s trademark orb on the heel and chaos branding, and stars one of the most beautiful soles every introduced to man: a Renaissance-reminiscent portrait of mother and child, overlaid with the Asics logo in gold.

It is, in short, the greatest sneaker release in recent memory. Forget Nike, Vans, or Adidas, Vivienne Westwood kicks are the only kind we’ll be coveting this summer. Blessed be.
