Lanvin's Sock Sneaker is the fashion brand's latest footwear project and it comes in the form of a stretchy knit high-top shoe. The sneakers draw inspiration from diving boots and it shows through the silhouette of the piece and the rubber soles. The shoe's upper is crafted from a stretch-knit material for a snug fit, with a strong rubber sole piece as a foundation to have traction and durability in wet weather. Fitting like a sock, the collar hugs around the foot and ankles.

Lanvin's Sock Sneaker is available in two colorways -- black and white. The branding on the unique pair of shoes is kept to a minimum to maintain the brand's muted minimalist approach. The shoes are available on MR PORTER's website for $575.
