California-native Rick Owens has a penchant for turning tradition on its head, taking classic footwear silhouettes and reimagining them for the modern man. Owens’ designs marry timeless shapes, such as the Chelsea boot, with his affinity for a more brutalist, grunge aesthetic. And it’s not only bold boot options by the designer that the fashion world continues to covet. Luxury retailer SSENSE is also stocking some slick sneakers by Rick, and we’ve rounded up the best of his footwear options that you can shop on the site now.
Stepping up first is the “Beetle” boot, the upper half of which takes the form of the traditional Chelsea silhouette. In true Rick style, the classic has been transformed by his signature tractor sole, coming in transparent rubber.
Not content with the reconstruction of formal options, the designer has also released a host of sneaker silhouettes fit for the future. This stretch sock runner laughs in the face of kicks claiming to be high-top.
