For sneakerheads, vegan sneaker options can be a bit limited, especially in the high-end fashion world. But thanks to Rick Owens, a luxury option is now available.
Owens recently released a high and low options of his DRKSHDW sneakers which are available in two colorways each - black and dark rust. The shoes consist of canvas uppers that sit on rubber outsoles that feature jagged shark teeth-like bottoms. The high tops also incorporate a side zipper closure adding to the fashionable aesthetic and ease of use.
Those familiar with the vegan lifestyle know that it can be a bit pricey. And these DRKSHDWs are no different. Coming in at approximately $430, after conversion from Australian dollars to U.S. dollars, for the low and $500 for the high, fans committed to the culture will have to shell out quite a bit of coin. The DRKSHDWs are currently available on the Australian site, Sneakerboy, but if you have plans of copping, you might want to act quickly as many sizes are already sold out.
