Highsnobiety

Sneakers are your steady companions for taking on the streets. Sauntering down the sidewalk with your bestie never looked so good. We’re giving you the round-up of a round gem, Planet Earth herself. If you’re in the market for earthy accents to wildin’ fits, here is a selection that will let you play in the Garden of Earthly Delights - figuratively, of course. That’s a painting. These are shoes. 

Earth tones are grounded, real, authentic. They lead us to think of forest floors, peaty soil, a patch of grass with a fresh pearl of water dripping off the edge of its blades. When you throw off your sneaks and leave ‘em on the balcony they’re still there, waiting for the next adventure. 

Take off, and tread lightly - the Earth has got your back. Here’s our selection of the baddest Earth tone sneakers in town.

Jumanji your way through the game of life with these brown-on-brown Monclers. There is nowhere to go but up and over with those over the top fold-over tongues. Quite the tongue-twister! One thing is for sure, no-one will be in doubt about the clout from the Moncler moniker.

$210
Buy at Harvey Nichols

There’s enough green to go around in this sneaker worthy of Mother Nature herself. It’s got suede edging along the toe, a beige lining and a simple white-lace up expression to tie together a neat and tidy take on earthy.

$900
Buy at Harvey Nichols

We’re suckers for hi-tops. Rick Owens has outdone himself with a sneak that lifts itself to the edge of your (straight-legged, ofc) jeans. A retro classic that never goes out of style, the rough leather upper lends a rugged look giving just a slight hint you’re a lumberjack at the weekends.

$740
Buy at Harvey Nichols

Camo may be a more literal take on blending in with Mother Nature. However, we find it to be effective. Here are the rockrunners that will go all chameleon-like when you hop, skip and jump over stones in that holiday waterfall.

AMIRI Bone Runner Mesh Sneakers

$705
Buy at Harvey Nichols

Representing for the more timid jungle-dweller, this pair of Amiri's are more subdued in their Earth tones. It’s giving safari guide, and we are not mad about it.

A distressed sneaker sends the signal that it's been on the ground for a while. What could say earthy more than track marks?

Balenciaga Speed Stretch-Knit Sneakers

BalenciagaSpeed Sneakers
$895
Buy at Harvey Nichols

This has a sock aesthetic, by virtue of the stretch-knit textile ending in a cinch at the top. Trust Balenciaga to do something different with the earthy theme.

CLEENS Ollie Panelled Leather Sneakers

CLEENSOllie Sneakers
$155
Buy at Harvey Nichols

These CLEENS shoes are worthy of a jungle king (see our round-up of Issey Miyake pieces that take a walk on the wild side here.) With a chunky sole, you’re set to wander through the Amazon, unfazed. The demure color palette goes with most of, well, anything you choose to wear up top.

GucciGG Rhyton Sneakers
$750
Buy at Harvey Nichols

Monogramming doesn't exactly scream forest dweller, but these brown-tinged sneakers hit all the right notes when it comes to aerodynamic ease and smooth stealth wealth. There is no doubt about the origins of these shoes with THAT GG emblem across the upper.

MONCLER Promyx White Leather Sneakers

The subtle details are what make this shoe a great denouement to this collection. With a barely there Moncler logo, simple red, white and blue accented circles and delicate perforation across the top, we have a simplistic and elegant take on earthy.
