Balmain x puma
The list of the most high-profile collaborations of the season (no - a year!) Includes the Puma and Balmain collection, released as part of the Puma Select project. He reimagines the sports brand's signature designs by bringing in designers, artists and streetwear main characters from Danish Han Kjobenhavn to South Korean Instagram sensation Ader Error. This time, Puma teamed up with Balmain's creative director Olivier Rousteing and his main muse Cara Delevingne, giving them Cell and Deva sneakers to customize. Both pairs received rubberized contrast inserts, gold-tone eyelets, and a zip design often seen on Balmain clothing. By the way, she is also in the collaboration - these are sweatpants with shiny stripes, quilted bombers with branded embroidery, striped hoodies with deliberate holes and boxing shorts,which can be worn outside the ring.

Karl Lagerfeld X Puma
A month before the announcement of the collection with Balmain, in October, Puma presented the results of its collaboration with another luxury brand - Karl Lagerfeld. In addition to olympics, T-shirts, sweatshirts and trousers in Karl's favorite color combination - black and white, it includes new variations of the textbook Puma sneakers: Suede, Roma, Cali, Cell and Alteration. The first (they, by the way, celebrate their 50th anniversary) are supplemented with removable Velcro in the form of sunglasses, the second - with a polka dot pattern and soft piping, the third - with a side zipper and pink inserts, the fourth - with a “personalized” fluted tongue, and the fifth - with a futuristic (post-apocalyptic) platform. Knowing the behest of Karl Lagerfeld, who was the first to urge to wear sneakers not only with sportswear, but also with couture dresses, these models simply could not be different.

Off- White X Nike
Vacation is a vacation, and new collaborations with Nike will not release themselves - as the founder of Off-White Virgil Abloh says, presenting the Vapor Street sneakers, developed together with the sports brand.

Air Jordan 1, Air Max 90, Air Max 97, Air Force 1, Vapor Max, Zoom VaporFly, Blazer, Air Presto, Hyperdunk and Chuck Taylor from Converse, a Nike subsidiary, feature cable ties, aged suede inserts and Captain style inscriptions Obvious (a trademark of the Off-White collections) - "foam" and "air". Every year they come out with new details and in different shades.

JW Anderson X Converse
Converse has a lot to brag about besides its collaboration with Off-White: the brand has also worked with Comme des Garçons and JW Anderson. Moreover, the partnership with Anderson, who fell in love with Converse sneakers when he saw the brand ambassador James Dean in them, became long-lasting: the joint models have been released for the fifth season in a row. Following the glittery Chuck Taylor All Star at JW Anderson's 2017 Pitti Uomo, the range has been expanded to include sneakers in patent leather, branded canvas, plain felt and - attention, super hit - on a wide rubber platform. The designer advises buying them complete with a bag from his latest collection, made in the form of a baseball cap and a sneaker at the same time.

Raf Simons X adidas
Cooperation between Raf Simons and adidas continues - the first sneakers by the Belgian designer and the German brand were presented back in 2013. And we know perfectly well why: in the process of creating them, Raf, who for a long time was limited by the framework of Calvin Klein, and now builds a reputation for his own brand, can cheat from the heart. Hole the adidas Ozweego model? Yes please! Run a pair of Stan Smiths in aged leather? Well, of course! Moreover, each of the joint releases of the two brands instantly receives the status of "sold-out" - if anything, we warned.

Alexander wang x adidas
In partnership with Alexander Wang, adidas creates a total look: windbreakers, hoodies, shorts, knee-highs and even towels with the name of the American designer and the brand's inverted shamrock. But the most anticipated pieces from the collaboration are discreet and therefore versatile sneakers: high AW BBall, suede Scate and leather Run, complemented by a “toe” insert. Although the models from the latest release cannot be called simple: the Futureshells, made in the shape of a seashell, are more reminiscent of the architecture of Zaha Hadid, and the Ball Soccer, decorated with elements of football and basketball shoes, are placed on a spectacular foam platform.

Vetements X Reebok
One of the main collaborations of 2017 remains relevant to this day. The Instapump Fury sneaker with yellow emojis and the Sock Runner with a built-in toe was followed by the Spike Runner 200 and 400 with greetings from the archived Reebok model - Premier Running. The Runner 200 is harmless (mesh textiles, shock-absorbing inserts and a raised outsole), but the 400 is aggressive (durable platform and silver studs). Thank you, Demna, they are not afraid to come back from work on November evenings.

Vivienne Westwood X ASICS
"Punk, Icon, Activist" (this is the name of the documentary about Vivienne Westwood) and the Japanese corporation ASICS began to work together only this year, but have already released two collections of sneakers. The first included updated versions of the ASICS Gel-Kayano 5 OG and Gel-Mai Knit models, which received prints from the archival collections of Vivienne Westwood, and the second included Gel-Saga, Hyper Gel-Lyte and Gel-DS Trainer OG, made from white leather with inserts from various textiles and using a painting by Francois Boucher as a print. With the Rococo style, which was represented by a French painter, Vivienne Westwood has been flirting since the 90s.
