Oversized brand type and logo cloning is the latest hype trend stepping down runways. Working best on a monochrome canvas, it’s a low-key way to turn heads without sacrificing dark sneaker sharpness. These pairs from Balenciaga and Valentino tick all the boxes – and then some.

Accessories can be used to your advantage, helping frame your sneakers and make them pop, especially with fluoro yellow and green being the hypercolour hues of the moment. The eternally classic (absence of) colour, black, is this season punctuated with bold brand logos in luxury materials, on everything from side bags to caps.
