Luxury fashion house Dior is an expert across many areas in the fashion and beauty industry -- its latest B23 sneakers are representative of that expertise. The footwear model is part of the label's Spring/Summer 2019 collection and it was introduced by Japan's own Hankyu. The sneakers boast a low-top structure and chunky foundation to contrast one another through the silhouette.

The thick sole and plethora of branding accents draw design inspiration from its own 'Oblique' technical canvas model. Additionally, the B23 sneaker features a pull tab at the rear and rubber-constructed toe cap. Contrasting elements are informed through the metal eyelets as a strong statement against the transparent monogram uppers. In addition to the overbranded uppers, the thick midsoles showcase a DIOR patch as well.
