The seven-layer steel blades of Japanese swordsmith Masamune were rumored to slice, then heal, leaves floating past in a stream.

Incomparable materials and avant-garde details make our favorite designer sneakers works of art in their own right. Keep reading for a closer look at creations by Lanvin, Givenchy, Valentino, Balenciaga, Common Projects and Maison Martin Margiela.

“March 26, 1987 marked the release of the Air Max 1 and with it, a revolution began. In the form of a literal window to the sole, the invisible became visible, and Nike Air cushioning forever changed how Nike designed running sneakers.” —Nike Inc.

Sparked from an Air-Sole prototype created by engineer Frank Rudy and brought to life through countless trials and errors by shoe designers Mark Parker and Tinker Hatfield, Nike’s iconic Air Max sneaker—the first to ever feature air cushioning you can see—turns 27 today.

These French flag-themed New Balance 574s were made in the USA especially for our French Fling Pop-In Shop in extremely limited numbers—and there’s a decent chance we still have them in your size! But not for long. As the wise man who writes our product pages stated, they’re “more rare than an Henri Jayer Pinot Noir, and pair a heck of a lot better with shorts.”

Grab your tri-colors while you can, whether you care to show your allegiance to liberté, égalité and fraternité—or just want to out-class the world’s foremost street-style stars. (Sneakers this chic go with everything from turned-up dad jeans to tailored suits these days, don’t you know.)
