Every sneakerhead should own at least one pair of luxury sneakers. Admittedly, it’s not always easy justifying the high price tag but like any purveyor of quality will tell you, this is an investment that pays off.

From the chunky profile of the Triple S to the iconic Gucci Leather Sneakers, this guide introduces some of this summer’s most exclusive footwear. Add some luxury to your rotation and you’ll have a go-to style for those times when Nike or adidas just won’t do!


Balenciaga Triple S Neon Green | Available at Mr Porter

Not that you need a reason to own the hugely hyped Triple S but this latest colourway is seriously tempting. Hits of neon green are offset by muted white coloured mesh alongside the lux finish of black suede.

Worn by everyone from the famous to the fashion-forward, this trainer should be considered the pinnacle in chunky footwear. Plenty more styles are currently available at Mr Porter.


Off-White Jogger Leather Trimmed Sneakers | Available at Mr Porter

When Virgil Abloh isn’t reinventing iconic Nike footwear, he’s bringing that sense of contemporary styling to an impressive Off-White line-up.

For SS19, this eye-catching number is one of the more colourful of the bunch. If you’re looking to make a statement, the vibrant hits of neon are sure to do it. And in case you forget, each heel is stamped with Off-White’s signature quotation marks; “Left” and “Right”.


Gucci Ace Watersnake Leather Sneakers | Available at Mr Porter

Otherwise known as the “Kingsnake“, this embellished sneaker is instantly recognisable. It’s the versatility of these which makes them so popular. Not only can they be worn with trousers but they’re an ideal compliment to chino shorts.

Just like many others in the range, this pair features croc-effect leather panels at the rear in Gucci’s classic green and red colours.


Off-White Logo Webbing-Trimmed Slides | Available at Mr Porter

That best selling industrial belt has been the focus for many an Instagram image. Now, it features across these summer-ready slides. The perfect accompaniment to your holiday wardrobe, who said you can’t enjoy some high-fashion at the beach?!

Be sure to size up on these as they do fit a little tight!


Gucci Rhyton Logo Print Sneakers | Available at Mr Porter

When it comes to chunky footwear, the Rhyton is right up there with the best of them. Mr Porter is currently stocking no less than 9 styles including those eye-popping volt colourways.

This pair, however, is slightly more understated but still just as outrageous. With an oversized Gucci logo, these exude nothing but luxury. Finish the look with a pair of Gucci branded socks.

Balenciaga Triple S Yellow | Available at Mr Porter

Soft nylon across this Triple S makes it way more lightweight than the conventional. The vivid use of yellow brings even more summer appeal whilst layers of premium suede add some refinement.

Whether you’re new to the Triple S hype or an avid collector, this is surely one of the must cop iterations?! As always, a three layered sole sits underfoot but unlike the original, a smaller and more understated Balenciaga logo features.

Alexander McQueen Exaggerated Sole Sneakers | Available at Mr Porter

Step above the crowd in a pair of Alexander McQueen’s most on-trend sneaker. Plenty of colourways have launched but we especially like this new-in release. A vibrant shade of royal blue is just colourful enough without making these to0 over the top. Elsewhere and premium leather uppers give a soft and luxurious finish.

Gucci Rhyton Logo Print Sneakers | Available at Mr Porter

Gucci opt for a glam rock inspired logo against the distressed leather of the oversized Rhyton. Graphics borrowed from The Rolling Stones and Kiss elevates these in a league of their own.

What’s the best part? These were designed for heavy wear. The more you scuff them, the better they look!

Balenciaga Speed Stretch Knit Sneakers | Available at Mr Porter

This ultra-adaptive trainer was first debuted back in 2016 and it’s still just as popular as ever. Crafted with flexible knit material, these contour to the foot, promising unrivalled support and comfort. The subtle hits of red to that tech-wear inspired midsole manage to counter the otherwise monochromatic uppers.


Balenciaga Triple S Clear Sole | Available at Saks

It’s hardly surprising that these are almost sold-out at Mr Porter. Hopefully, your size is still available because this colourway is nothing short of striking for the summer season.

This is the first in the range to sport a crystal clear midsole. The upper compliments in light tones of cream and white. These should be strictly reserved for the sunniest of days!
