Inspired by London’s extensive history of countercultural movements, SWEAR have introduced its Air Revive collection, including a trio of eye-catching styles with chunky outsoles and sock uppers.
The platform sneakers evoke ’90s rave aesthetics, featuring stretch faux leather or mesh for the upper, and a chunky, translucent sole unit. While the shoes come in a variety of colors at Farfetch, the true head turners from the collection come in its red, pink, and blue colorways. That said, for an extra $60, the futuristic sneakers are entirely customizable via the SWEAR London website, so you can have a truly unique pair of shoes that merge all of 2018’s biggest trends.
One Highsnobiety staffer who can’t get enough of SWEAR’s Air Rev. Triggers is our curator Rhianna Matthews, who has been playing around with Swear’s customizable functions to bring you two of her own designs. Being the first to admit that these styles aren’t the easiest to throw on with your everyday get-up, she’s also offered some styling tips for her own black, white and grey creations.
The shoes are available now for a price of $440, or $498 for customized versions. Browse our favorites below.
“These aren’t the easiest sneakers to style,” says Rhi. “But with the right custom they will look fire with some of 2018’s most futuristic and utilitarian pieces. These U.P.W.W joints or the reflective nylon pants from A-COLD-WALL* (both grails of mine) will look dope either tucked in or left loose. I’d pair that with this monochrome printed shirt from Heliot Emil and an A-COLD-WALL* side bag (A bit of a fan of ACW, if you can’t tell).”
