5 Footwear Buys That Channel the Cybercore Trend

Featuring Rick Owens, Balenciaga, Salomon and more.

Cybercore can be described as a micro-trend within the overarching return to Y2K fashion that specifically channels an internet-centric aesthetic of the time — think kitschy alien graphics, a little dystopia and the type of imagery that would have been embedded into a MySpace profile.

The styling is moody and emo, with purveyors of the trend opting for layered tops with varied necklines, hits of neon, Tamagotchis as accessories, holographic elements and the occasional butterfly.

While the clothing may not be entirely universal, people of varied fashion aesthetics can work a little cybercore into their lives by way of footwear. From futuristic kicks to larger-than-life platform boots, read on for our favorite cybercore-friendly footwear to shop now.
