Dystopian, sci-fi-esque styles were popping off at London Fashion Week earlier this year. More recently, fashion’s dip into the aesthetics of The Matrix (especially for sunglasses) has made technical, strapped-up legwear a must-have for those wanting an edgier flex this season.

In our curated selection of technical pants we’ve found two pairs from new Korean label 51 percent. The first option has black bondage-like details and the second pair, optimized for utility, arrives in a cool blue-gray colorway.

From the more high-end range of designers, there’s a pair of cargo pants from Heliot Emil featuring cuffed straps going up the leg and lastly, from Japanese label Julius, there’s a pair of slim-fit paneled trousers with eight pockets, adjustable belts, and press-release fastenings.

Take a look at the full list below and let us know how you’re styling them out in the comments.
