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.

Below, we’ve rounded up all the best Rick Owens sneakers that keep thriving in today's fashion sphere. Keep scrolling down, and choose your player.

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 of the house's selection.

Owens pulls elements from basketball sneakers while staying true his avantgarde aesthetic, through elements like the oversized padded tongue. He offers variations of the style; different material textures and colors, culminating in an ultimate shocker, the transparent leather variant.

Some of these kicks' resemblance to the Converse Chuck Taylor is undeniable, and that is exactly what Rick Owens is going for.

All of them feature the designer's signature characteristics, like a high-top silhouette, ankle lace-up or velcro fastening, and long tongues. Mostly made of calfskin leather, they're the perfect luxury option if you stand by classics with a dark twist.

Also inspired by the Converse Chuck Taylor, Rick Owens offers low-top versions of 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.

As may very well have become apparent by now, Rick Owens is no stranger to taking the familiar and subverting it to meet personal aesthetic. His most recent collaboration is no exception to this, as it sees him taking the well-known and beloved Dr. Marten's boot and Rick-ing it up.

These high and even-higher-top boots meld the English brand's key traits – such as the bouncy soles, the yellow stitching and the loop tag – with Rick Owens' eery, grungy handwriting.
