Jeremy Scott collaborates with adidas on some of the wildest sneaker designs, so if there’s anyone to take the fashion sneakers trend to the next level, it’s him. In the 39-year-old American designer’s latest fall 2014 fashion presentation, sneakers were the natural match to his locker-room-inspired clothing. Fuzzy number jerseys, mesh baseball t-shirts, and striped tube sock dresses all had their corresponding Jeremy Scott x adidas kicks. What made the new sneakers different from past collaborations is that this time, they are laced up all the way to the thighs!
Cut up in three lace-up panels, the sneaker boots are made to resemble protective sports gear. But because of all the laces and the fact that they’re thigh-high, they’re also reminiscent of gladiator sandals and the tall gladiator sandal boots trend.
Below are the sneaker boots in all the colorways sent down the runway.
Jeremy Scott also threw these single-cuff and open-toe versions into the mix:
