Lanvin unveiled a surprising sneaker style during its Paris Fashion Week FW20 show over the weekend. Alongside more formal styles, a skateboarding-inspired sneaker made waves among those present at the show.

The sneaker, which you can check out in detail above, looks to be a high-end reinterpretation of mid ’00s skate shoes, more specifically the Osiris D3. The Lanvin sneaker’s distinct shape and lace cage design look to have been lifted from the D3.

The Osiris D3 was, of course, the source of inspiration for A$AP Rocky’s first (and so far only) collaboration with Under Armour, as well as one of Virgil Abloh’s previous Louis Vuitton designs.

Mid ’00s skateboarding design looked to be coming back at one point, mostly due to the rise of chunky sneakers, though the trend never really materialized as expected. Lanvin, it seems, is giving it another go with its currently unnamed FW20 sneaker.
