Under the creative direction of Pierpaolo Piccioli, Valentino has clearly been tapping into the athleisure trend lately. After dropping athleisure-influenced collections, including a pair of sock-like sneakers, the Italian powerhouse is now dipping into the chunky sneakers trend.

When compared to other luxury brands like Balenciaga or Gucci, Valentino is arguably an underdog in the whole chunky sneaker game. However, these New Runner sneakers are actually fire – Valentino may be on to something here. From the mesh and leather upper, the camo details, to the extra chunky sole, these sneakers are actually worth copping.

Retailing for $845, the chunky creps are available to buy right now.
