Tyler, the Creator’s GOLF WANG label unveiled its Winter 2018 lookbook yesterday. While almost everyone focused on the colorful garms, the most interesting aspect — from a sneakerhead perspective — was the ’00s skate-inspired sneaker above.
The lookbook was actually our second look at this new GOLF WANG/GOLF le FLEUR* sneaker, after A$AP Rocky wore a more different pared-back colorway in GOLF’s FW18 video lookbook. But the shot above gives us our clearest, most detailed look at the new style yet.
Featuring an extra thick midsole, the sneaker’s busy upper features a number of overlayed panels, as well as a padded tongue (an old-school skate shoe staple). Converse branding can be seen on the forefoot section of the midsole, suggesting another collaborative effort.
For a look at the two other colorways spotted in GOLF WANG’s video lookbook, watch below. Screenshots were also captured and shared on Instagram here.
