read more “I love you Linda Farrow, I adore you Dior,” rapped A$AP Rocky on 2013 track “Fashion Killa.” Evidently, Dior feels similarly about the Harlem rapper as they’ve been kind enough to lavish him with a pair of unreleased SS18 runners.
Dior is the latest haute couture giant to muscle its way into the dad sneaker game, joining luminaries such as Gucci and Balenciaga. Cleaner and less avant-minded than the aforementioned, the not insubstantial shoe arrives in white with luminous flashes on the heel and tongue, red accents on the midsole, and additional hits of black on the upper and laces. (When we say “not insubstantial,” what we really mean is they’re ginormous and hauntingly similar to Under Armour’s Curry 2.)
Of course, this is A$AP Rocky we’re talking about, and the man could literally wear disposable plastic bags from Walmart on his feet and still slay the game. Here, he’s paired the beefy kicks with some joggers from newcomer S.P. Badu and a white T-shirt, setting the look off with a camo print vest.
