Here’s a truth bomb: A man can only own that many white sneakers in his rotation before they all start to look alike. Now, that the pandemic has given us enough quiet time to reflect on this stark wardrobe reality, it brings us to what’s next for a sneakerhead like you. Well, these. Dior’s CD1 sneakers in a tie-dye outfit looks like that dream you had of attending a Holi Festival coloured powder bath which probably sounds more fun than you had in months. And they concur with every laidback-vibing tie-dye buy stocked since your last outdoor music fest or beach vacay. These Italian-made CD1, however, are a little more special than just a swirling spectrum of lava lamp colours and a slick name. These were created together with American artist Daniel Arsham, whose pop culture-capturing quartz crystal sculptures have become a fresh revelation on social media. Which part in particular is Arsham’s masterstroke? Peep at the transparent inserts on the on-point chunky midsole that allude to his signature use of quartz as well as the new Dior font that are exclusive to this summer ‘20 collab. Feel free to include this to your new TGIF fit.
