Luxury fashion house Alexander McQueen introduced its Oversized Runner as a premium chunky shoe inspired by a retro runner. This silhouette boasts oversized cues and exaggerated details, marking its second step into the footwear industry. McQueen is often recognized for its impeccable theatrical tailoring and undeniable British craftsmanship, embodying everything couture. This Oversized Runner takes on a sporty perspective in design but translates its luxurious cues through material use.

The sneaker is constructed from a blend of both nappa and calf leather, detailed with a clean bold stripe accent that wraps itself all the way around the shoe. There are also large flat laces, an over-padded tongue and a heel counter that sees the designer's signature. This all sits on top of a thick sole crafted from rubber and is available for purchase now online for the price of $790.
