6 Non-Sneakers for Sneaker Lovers

Meet the new grails.

Made popular by James Harris and Lawrence Schlossman of “Throwing Fits,” the term “post-sneaker” defines the fashion landscape that embraces alternate and experimental forms of footwear. More specifically, these are consumers that were at one point sneaker enthusiasts, but given the current trend cycle and/or the market’s over saturation, this audience seeks the unique and “neck-breaking” effect that their favorite kicks once held.

Silhouettes that dominate the post-sneaker category range from Clarks Wallabees and Bass Weejuns loafers to Marni‘s pony hair mules and the YEEZY NSLTD Boot. Read on for a selection of our favorite non-sneakers for sneaker lovers.
