Editor’s Notes: The Rhyton was Gucci’s entrant into the world of chunky sneakers and successfully challenged the likes of Balenciaga’s Triple S, evidenced by the fact that the kicks were often seen on influencers’ feet at various fashion week events upon their release.
Now, the “Made in Italy” sneaker has received a sporty update, featuring a bold, abstract take with the house logo on its side. The design change serves to keep things fresh and the silhouette firmly in the minds of consumers.
Much like the previous Rhyton sneakers, this update plays on the in-your-face trend that has led to oversized logos becoming one of the biggest sneaker trends last year.
