From luxe labels like Louis Vuitton and Lanvin to couture shoemaker Christian Louboutin, high-fashion houses are taking their lavish creations to the street with these bold couture kicks. Whether sporting embellished stud styles or opting for a sleek Italian leather look, fashionable sneaker fanatics are putting their fierce designer footwear accessories on display.

Made popular by superstars, including hip-hop trendsetter Kanye West, these couture kicks are more likely to act as a style statement rather than an athletic accessory. Ranging from haute high-tops and acid-wash sneakers to embellished loafers, these high fashion sneaker designs prove that style and comfort can go hand-in-hand.

Whether showcasing intricately beaded details or whimsically winged accents, these alluring designer footwear accessories prove that sneakers can indeed be stylish and not solely worn for sport.
