Supreme x Dr. Martens: The summer of wild shoes is upon us
A few years ago, loafers went crazy in the best possible way, following in the footsteps of the sneaker wave. Boots and clogs of all types quickly followed suit. As spring approaches, crisp white sneakers will definitely do the trick. But if you’re looking for something fresher and funkier, then you’re in luck. This week brings two new collaborations – from Supreme and Dr. Martens, as well as Noah and Vans. We advise you to buckle up: any of these kicks are sure to turn heads.
The New York streetwear icon and Dr Martens have worked together for many years, and this season’s effort is just the last big collaboration the two have abandoned. Sometimes Supreme riffed on the English brand’s more obscure styles like the Rousden Creeper; other times, they’ve focused on the more iconic ones, like the 6-eyed boot. Either way, there’s usually an eccentric twist involved, like an exterior shade or an eye-catching pattern.
Now Supreme has set their sights on Dr. Martens’ 5-Eye shoe, a slightly more relaxed take on the brand’s standard 1461 Oxford shoe. In typical Supreme fashion, the kicks have been turbocharged and rendered in tangerine orange and a bold zebra print. (Don’t worry, there’s a more mundane pair of black leather as well.)
While Supreme went a bit dressier with this week’s shoe collaboration, Noah kicked off their latest offering with Vans in the form of a high-top (and extremely summer-ready) sneaker. Taking inspiration from the old-fashioned skating scene in Venice, the kicks feature abstract camouflage, a nod to the kind of loud print you would have seen when the shoes first came out at the end of the 1980s. 1980s. The sneaker is available in two colors: white and green, and a much wilder black and hot pink. Even if you don’t intend to step on a skateboard, the rubber toe detailing makes them a durable pair of sneakers.
You need a few things to really do well in the summer, and next-level shoes are definitely at the top of this list. Whether you want something a little more dressy, like a 5-eyelet lace-up or a skate-rat inspired sneaker, the choice is yours. Whichever path you take, no one can tell you are wearing boring summer shoes.
