The Fashion Set Offers Lessons in Styling GOAT’s Selection of Fresh Kicks

Featuring Aleali May, Alani Figueora, Evelyn Escobar Thomas and Anni Bolika.

Ask plenty of trendsetters and they’ll tell you: the pièce de résistance of any standout look is a crisp pair of kicks. Come winter, boots are usually the outfit-finishing footwear of choice. But, according to the savviest of dressers like Aleali May, Alani Figueora, Evelyn Escobar Thomas and Anni Bolika, it’s time to rethink your sensible shoe options for a fresher, less winter-driven choice. This season, current sneaker favorites to consider include the 2014 Air Jordan 6 Retro “Carmine,” the Off-White ™ x Nike Dunk Low “Pine Green” and the Kiko Kostadinov x ASICS Gel Delva 1 “Cool Mist.” As evidenced by the fashion set, these statement-making silhouettes can instantly elevate an outfit. Ahead, find ten must-have sneakers from GOAT’s lineup, as seen on the next wave of influential dressers. 

Aleali May


Never one to shy away from making a bold color statement, Aleali May expertly pairs her 2014 Air Jordan 6 Retro “Carmine” kicks with orange leather pants embellished with bondage-inspired detailing and silver chains. A Louis Vuitton silver metallic puffer vest paired with an oversized graphic T-Shirt and graphic Loewe sunglasses provides the perfect balance of street meets high-fashion. 

The Canadian Tuxedo receives a fashion-forward makeover courtesy of Aleali May. Here, the denim-on-denim look is given new life when worn with a cropped, light-wash denim jacket and oversized two-toned jeans, accessorized with a studded belt, powder blue Loewe sunglasses and a coordinating denim mini-bag. To add a pop of color, Aleali sports her very own Aleali May x Wmns Air Jordan 1 Retro High “Court Lux,” taking the tonal denim look to great heights. 

For a true maximalist take on wearing color, try this traffic-stopping style by mixing a high-impact red coat with coordinating sneakers in the same brazen hue. Aleali hits the streets in her Air Jordan 12 Retro “Gym Red” kicks and pairs the standout silhouette with a cutoff graphic T-shirt, floor-grazing black jeans with zipper detailing and a ‘90s-inspired silver ball choker by Martine Ali. 

Alani Figueroa 

Go big and bold when it comes to wearing color à la Alani Figueroa. The street-style star and self-professed sneakerhead masterfully mixes Day-Glo separates — including a neon orange cardigan with wide-leg pants in the same vivid hue and a slime green turtleneck — with Off-White ™ x Dunk Low “Pine Green” kicks. To finish the carrot-inspired look, accessorize with gold layered chain necklaces and a neon green shoulder bag. 

Clean, precise tailoring is no longer just a man’s game according to Alani, who elevates a pinstriped suit with sleek, statement-making accessories. This season, champion a new form of dressing by wearing a fitted suit with mounds of chain necklaces, stacked gold rings, hoop earrings and a cherry-red box bag for a burst of color. Complete the feminine tailored look with a pair of 2020 Women’s Air Jordan OG Retro “White” sneakers for an unconventional take on suiting.

Alani demonstrates how to wear 50 shades of beige without being boring. Elevate the art of neutral dressing by pairing a beige shearling coat with a coordinating bustier that can be layered over a ribbed turtleneck and paired with workwear pants in a subtle wash of cream. Accented accessories like a bucket hat, monogrammed Gucci bag and the Yeezy 500 “Blush” sneakers complete the monochromatic look. 

Evelyn Escobar-Thomas

Sustainability is always in style and Evelyn Escobar Thomas demonstrates that a limited-edition, purple tie-dye sweat suit by Everybody.World acts as the perfect jumping-off point for building a look that’s equally parts stylish and comfy. Accented with a cream mini-purse, stacked rings and a coordinating scrunchie, Evelyn finishes her sporty look with a pair of the 2019 Nike Dunk Low SP Retro “Viotech” sneakers.

Classic, wearable pieces are at the core of Evelyn’s sporty take on style. Mixing a graphic, oversized hoodie with wide-leg pants in a subtle wash of cream, Evelyn balances the neutral-hued look with a pair of Kiko Kostadinov x ASICS Gel Delva 1 “Cool Mist” kicks, inspired by the brand’s classic creations.

Anni Bolika 

Anni Bolika demonstrates how to ease into wearing neon green by offsetting her Awake NY x ASICS Gel Kayano 5 360 “Silver Mint” kicks with punchy staples, like a bucket hate and hooded jacket, in the same vivid color. A graphic T-shirt, along with silver separates, such as slick pants and a metallic parka, balance the colorful hues of the look for a minty-fresh take on how to wear color. 

Nothing says statement denim quite like a pair of oversized jeans decked out in edgy, graphic designs. To give the closet staple a new twist, ditch your tried-and-true jeans for something more festive like Anni’s that can easily be added into your regular lineup. Chunky kicks like, PUMA’s RS-X3 “Puzzle,” along with a halter-inspired top and a printed head scarf are fuss-free pieces that pair easily with an oversized coach’s jacket.
