At the end of May, Gucci took the wraps off a new Cruise 2018 collection at the Palazzo Pitti in Florence, Italy.

At the runway presentation, we spotted a pair of new Gucci kicks boasting a chunky, distressed design. Making its debut in a white-on-white colorway with dark blemishes on the upper, the shoe is crafted with an orthopedic sole and sportswear-inspired design, complete with Gucci branding on the tongue.

Given the way that Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele has been able to revitalize the label with exciting new designs in recent seasons, it’s interesting to see the house follow in the footsteps of names like adidas Originals x Raf Simons with the Ozweego, and Balenciaga with its Triple-S sneaker.

Now we can take a closer look at the sneaker, which is coming this fall as part of the Italian fashion house’s Cruise 2018 collection, in a range of colors and materials. Stay posted for more information as it arrives.

Now catch up on our list of the best sneakers of 2017 so far.
