Bulky, retro sneakers are still the silhouette of the moment, and with everyone from FILA to Gucci dropping their own versions, there’s an option to suit every budget. The recently-rebranded CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC offered up its take on the trend with its chunky Carla sneakers earlier this year and for summer, the kicks are back with a futuristic update.
The statement-making upper boasts shimmering silver leather throughout, with the mirror-like surface being complemented by the laceless design and avant-garde cut. A neoprene bootie-like sock lines the interior for optimum comfort and a snug fit, and an off-white adjustable strap around the heel adds a cool touch. The exaggerated midsole sees a vibrant hit of coral, interlocked with a sculpted, light grey outsole and Calvin Klein branding and zig-zag patterns upon the heel complete the look.
Pair these space-age kicks with an all-white outfit for the ultimate astronaut look, or with casual denim garments for laid-back everyday style. You can shop a pair of these ultra-shiny Carla sneakers at retailers like Nordstrom for $595 USD. Check out the monochromatic white option, too.
