Sneakers in recent years have made their way from being functional sporty footwear to being the style darlings on the streets. In recent months, we’re also starting to see more style icons completing their fashionable ensemble with a pair of sneakers, sparking a huge market for luxury fashion houses such as your Gucci and Pucci to reinvent what once used to be known as an athletic gear into a highly coveted fashion statement.

Brands like Ermenegildo Zegna also offer the option to customise or design your very own pair of sneakers.

Here, we’ve shortlisted five pairs of luxury sneakers below $1,000 from a few of our favourite online shopping sites. Owning a pair of posh sneakers is just only a few clicks away.
