The Visvim Tekke Skagway Hi Carpet Sneaker is a vibrant cultural treat, with a ruglike upper that features a carpet pattern inspired by Turkmen nomads.

The burnt red base of the pattern is accented with orange, black and white -- a versatile combination that will set off denim or black pants perfectly -- while the toe, heel and sole of the high-top sneaker appear in clean, crisp white.

We've seen tribal influences throughout fashion, but the Visvim Tekke Skagway Hi Carpet Sneaker is the first design I've seen to take inspiration from nomadic people and traditional carpeting. See more images of the high-top street shoe in the gallery above. Is this bold-patterned sneaker something you could see yourself rocking this season?
