In the last couple of decades, sneakers have become pivotal in the lifestyle field. Many luxury fashion houses have imprinted their own codes into the casual shoe. From Gucci’s ‘70s-leaning kicks to Givenchy’s futuristic designs, there is a style for everyone. Rick Owens sneakers have turned into one of the most requested kicks in the luxury sphere and the designer's emblematic disruptive shoes aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.
Owens’ first pair of kicks was released in 2006, and since then, his sneaker game has exploded in popularity. The Dustulator Dunk was inspired by the famous Nike Dunk and was later changed to the Geobasket Sneaker due to its similarity. Owens is a die-hard fan of classic mainstream vintage sneakers, and another pair to prove that is the Ramone, which has turned into a signature pair for the brand.
As one of the biggest luxury brands in today’s fashion scene, Rick Owens has brought his anti-fashion mantra to beloved footwear brands like adidas, Veja, and — more than a couple of times — Converse. However, there is nothing like Rick Owens’ in-house sneaker formula.

Today, fashion enthusiasts are in awe of every Rick Owens sneaker. But it’s safe to say that the Geobasket Sneaker has emerged as the most iconic shoe in its collection.
Owens pulls elements from basketball sneakers while keeping his disruptive aesthetic through elements like its oversized padded tongue. Owens offers variations of the shoe in materials like suede, smooth leather, and an ultimate shocker, transparent leather.
The Geth Sneakers are probably the most underrated shoe in Rick Owens' trainer collection.
This pair dodges the basketball elements and opts for running cues instead. These kicks have a futuristic look because of their pointy details like the paneling, squared-toe, and oversized leather tongue. Plus, its chunky rubber sole is ideal for all our short kings out there.
If we had to pick the most archetypal Rick Owens sneakers from this list, they would probably be the Cargobasket Sneakers.
This time, Owens takes the fan-favorite Geobasket Sneakers and drops a hybrid. The Cargobasket sneaker has a small compartment at the side to keep your most important valuables safe, and an exaggerated high-top composition to make all heads turn.
This sneaker's resemblance to the Converse Chuck Taylor is undeniable, and that is exactly what Rick Owens is going for.
The Edfu Sneaker stands out because of its high-top silhouette, ankle lace-up fastening, and long tongue. Mostly made of calfskin leather, these kicks are the perfect luxury option if you stand by the classics.
Also inspired by the Converse Chuck Taylor, Rick Owens offers a low-top version of its Edfu Sneakers. Keeping elements like the flat rubber sole unit, rounded toe, and lace-up front, this model is an easy-to-style option when on the go.
Just like most Rick Owens Trainers, this model also comes in other versions like its striking transparent leather in bold colorways.
