Location: Shanghai

Season: SS20

Key Looks: The DIY Vibram joints in slide #9 tells us that the trend kickstarted by Matthew Williams and his 1017 ALYX 9SM brand is still going strong. Elsewhere we see vintage cowboy boots, another ongoing trend across both men's fashion and women's fashion, and the usual blend of kicks from sportswear brands and recent interpretations of similar athletic footwear from luxury fashion brands.

Editor’s Notes: While we're used to seeing a mix of high and low on the feet of industry insiders at fashion weeks around the world, the SS20 season at Shanghai Fashion Week shows us that this mix is more volatile than ever, with custom pieces and vintage acquisitions just as likely to be seen on the ground. Sure, the majority of athletic sneakers come from Nike, but the variety of silhouettes on display here signal an exciting time in the ever-expanding world of sneakers in fashion.
