Alexander McQueen was seen as an exceptional talent in the fashion world. As part of the movement of designers using their fashion shows not just to showcase their designs but to generate media attention for their brand, the ‘bad boy’ regularly shocked even the most established of the fashion industry. Find out what the label’s shoe designs look like and why they’re a must-have for your wardrobe here.
It-Pieces: Trainers made of high-quality calfskin, suede and nappa leather
What is often called a sneaker in the US and Germany is commonly known as a trainer in the UK. Both names describe the same type of athletic footwear that is widely used in streetwear. But it hasn’t been a secret for a long time. Almost everyone has a pair of white sneakers on their shoe rack these days. The footwear is super easy to combine and goes with almost any outfit. Even in many office environments, sneakers are no longer outlawed.
The avant-garde and often socially critical shows were titled ‘Highland Rape’ or ‘Jack the Ripper stalks his victims’ and featured models in torn dresses and exposed breasts. Additionally, McQueen managed to create new silhouettes, a trait that separates the wheat from the chaff in the design universe. Just as ingenious as his other designs are his shoe and sneaker creations.

Comfortable with style: Alexander McQueen oversized sneakers
Even if the label likes to take a look at the past and is inspired by Victorian fashion or brings the sunken city of Atlantis back to life. Before the sneaker wave that has overtaken the fashion world, Alexander McQueen also could not avoid. The label has a huge selection of the leather shoes with contrasting heel application. So the possibility is also offered to conjure up a bit of color in the simple outfit.
For even more coloration, the predominantly white sneakers are also available with colored laces and soles. The latter offer a little extra gimmick, because the profile of the kicks is provided with a leopard print. In addition, the name of the fashion house is applied to both the tongue and the heel application.
