The Christopher Kane Looner Sneaker is coming soon. And it's as fun as it sounds.
Inspired by an exploration of the things that turn us on, the Looner Sneaker is an homage to the pleasure seekers getting their kicks from the Technicolour world of balloons.
"Human behaviour has always fascinated me...I'm drawn to the idea that people find sexual desire in mundane objects like balloons. Looners are balloon fetishists - that's interesting."
They were designed in London and made in Italy. The sneaker has a 7cm heel and a three-ball sole (inspired by balloons) that was finessed and developed over a year. Said sole also has a treaded rubber grip for durability. The upper is white mesh and multicoloured leather featuring a total of five colours: white and black - plus vivid primary shades of blue, red and yellow. The insole is neon, because we're Christopher Kane and you choose the laces, they come with a set of black and white.
The Looner Sneaker is our newest continuity style and the multicoloured colourway is the first to drop. It’s available at Selfridges and Matches with a limited number available on ChristopherKane.com.
