Wild, Outrageous Men’s Summer 2019 Sneakers

Sneaker culture has grown to permeate menswear as a symbol of cool style and/or belonging to the luxury tribe. From the Grailed fanatics trying to get their hands on sold out Off-White sneakers that have been flipped for a higher price, to those who love a luxury pair of Gucci kicks, sneakers are becoming an almost foolproof market. Just how outrageous have men’s sneakers gotten with the sneaker hype? Here’s some of Fashion Reverie’s selects, if you were wondering.
