Nasir Mazhar is one of London's most celebrated young designers right now, winning legions of fans who are desperate to join his "tribe"—including Skepta and co.—with his technical, constructed take on sportwear-influenced silhouettes. London through-and-through, Mazhar's work feels very real, and resonates as such with people looking for something aspirational that represents them in the fashion industry right now.
Today, Mazhar took to instagram to formally announce what was guessed after his show at London Collections: Men; that he is launching a line of sneakers. The black leather kicks were worn on the runway by all of the models in his show, and had attendees gaping as they tried to see exactly what they were, and now we have the answer. The kicks have a hightop construction, and look to draw heavily from boots in their design. They might be an acquired taste, but they looked fire on the runway.
Hold tight for information on the drop from us as it becomes available, but take a look at another image of the new sneakers below.
