British designer Christopher Kane released a series of sneakers highlighted by an eye-catching safety buckle design.

Designed exclusively for Net-a-Porter, these fashion sneakers are punctuated with large safety buckles and straps along the front of the shoe. The use of buckles in design has been a trademark of Kane's since a fashion show he released in the Spring of 2007.

This sneaker collection was designed to be worn by all ages of people, and also was specifically made to appear clean and minimal. A large yet lightweight rubber sole forms the base of each sneaker, and a number of different textures and materials define the upper of each different shoes. Meant to be fashionable yet practical, these shoes offer a new and innovative addition to the world of sneaker design.
