Fashion is always in flux, with the seasonal structure meaning that there’s perpetual motion. With this in mind, you’d think that it’d be the perfect industry for a young brand to break, cracking the code to relevance and slotting into the constantly revolving door of in-vogue labels. Not true. Not one bit. In fact, few industries are so steadfast in their components. It means that with the biggest names releasing a new pair of luxury sneakers every season, there’s little room for a newcomer to generate any noise.

Some do, though. One of the new names that have caught our eye lately is Collegium. The Los Angeles brand has been putting in overtime since it was founded in 2015, targeting customers on the hunt for luxury sneakers that transcend trends. While the big names in luxury footwear try to outdo each other with alien shapes and trend-driven silhouettes, this one keeps things timeless, building on a history of varsity sportswear silhouettes.

One of our favorite silhouettes from the brand is the Pillar Destroyer which epitomizes the label’s mission to simplify visuals to their most foundational stage. The low-top basketball silhouette comes in classic varsity colorways and features no overt detailing so as to put the luxury leather build in the spotlight above all else.

If you’re a fan of the pared-back aesthetic but like a little more punch, the Pillar Destroyer II — with a more engineered sole unit — occupies that niche. Still relying on high-end leather to make its mark, it offers a bolder but no less classic finish.
