This Balenciaga footwear (previously known as the Defender) has been renamed the Bouncer, adding an intriguing “automobile” element to the classic running shoe. The shoe is designed with leather-free mesh to enhance breathability. For the signature “worn off” Balenciaga look, the Defender is intentionally distressed and designed with faded or yellowish monochrome tones.

For a little extra height, the Clog version of Balenciaga Bouncer is also designed with an extra chunky heel that “rolls in” at every stride. This slip-on Clog takes inspiration from the heavy-duty tire, creating an interesting texture and a whole new walking experience.

“I Mean…It’s Rockstud!” — Valentino brings out the beloved staple for its Fall 2023 campaign and the slogan is definitely the vibe. This pyramid-shaped motif is actually inspired by the Roman Palazzo and has been a long-time signature for the Maison’s powerful codes. The Rockstud is a symbol of a rebellious, aristo-punk attitude. Continuing the Rockstud narrative through the Fall 2023 campaign, the Rockstud shows itself on two footwear silhouettes and a bag, dripping in the stunningly unmistakable Valentino pink.

Introducing Ferragamo’s footwear for Spring-Summer 2023, the Elina sandal. Continuing its witty play of geometry, the brand combines elements of the old and the new to give a fresh twist to its iconic styles. The funky sculpted heel of the Elina sandal is designed after the iconic Gancini, living up to the fashion house’s signature symmetry and structural harmony. Through the creative lens of Maximilian Davis, the sandal ensures both design and comfort – with fine strips of leather folded using the “book” technique paired with an ultra-slim padded square toe. The sandals are available in five colourways – black nappa with galvanised gold heels, full black, red, sky blue and yellow nappa.
