Rick Owens has successfully established his brand as the "go to" for edgy, minimalist and strikingly modern rock and roll cool. His styles have been mercilessly, and incompetently imitated by a dearth of new Asian lines, desperate to recreate just a little of the original's aesthetic. But without his raw talent, have failed repeatedly.
These new high-top trainer's in black leather from Rick Owens again display his aesthetic. Black leather body, vamp and tongue, chunky off white midsole, and Owens signature ridged sole, they are like a pair of converse from a dimension where everyone is a rock and roll star.
Available now from Brown's and other Rick Owens retailers for £685.
