    The Nine Sneakers (and One Hyped-Up Clog) Defining Fashion Now

    Louis Vuitton Men’s x Nike Air Force 1 by Virgil Abloh

    Curious about how monumental this Virgil Abloh–engineered linkup between Louis Vuitton Men’s and Nike actually is? Sotheby’s New York has an answer: In January, 200 limited-edition pairs of LV-embossed Air Force 1s were auctioned off for an earth-shattering $25.3 million in total, setting a new sales record for sneaker and fashion auctions in the process. The latest colorways—an icy white and a chromed-out black-blue-and-yellow concoction—are perhaps even more desirable than the now historic O.G.s, so expect to move some serious mountains to get your mitts on a pair (prices upon request). —Yang-Yi Goh

    Gazelle, $850, by Adidas x Gucci.

    When Gucci unveiled its much-heralded partnership with Adidas on the runway in February, there were plenty of fanciful Alessandro Michele flourishes on display. Matching mohair hats and sweatsuits. Flowing silk tracksuit gowns. High-heel three-striped boots. But the biggest showstopper of them all might also have been the simplest: Adidas’s iconic Gazelle sneaker ($850), doused entirely—from the canvas uppers to the gum midsoles—in Gucci’s righteous monogram print. —Y.G.

    Defender, $1,090, by Balenciaga.

    When you’re on a streak as blazing hot as Demna Gvasalia, you need a pair of kicks bold and freaky enough to keep up with you. Enter the Balenciaga Defender ($1,090): a techy, early-aughts-ish runner with monster-truck-ready treads bolted to its base. The supersized results feel a little Mad Max, sure, but the calming monochrome tones park them firmly in the realm of wearability. —Y.G.
