Gourmet shows somewhat of a lookbook for the collection of Spring 2010 sneakers. They come back with some new variations of the L’Uno’s, L’Quattro’s, and Cinque’s; but add on pair of low-tops, and one pair of Sperry-like mid-tops. We all expect creativity from Gourmet, and they keep on giving us what we want. The low-tops are called the “Diciotto’s”, while the mid-tops are called the “Dicinove”. The line is full of the traditional premium leathers, suedes, and canvas’. Make sure when these come out, you grab your pair at Gourmet’s website.

Creative Recreation lets us sneak a peek at their new Fall/Winter 2010 collection, and the progression is beautiful. In the past, we’ve been used to seeing the same silhouettes such as the Cesario or the Dicoco, but this year they’ve created some great new silhouettes; that look like they’ve been inspired by some sneakers of the past. The Solano is their newest piece, and includes zipper on the upper, that you can zip or un-zip for your preference. The Dicoco’s got a revamping with new colorways and textures. This year (quote me on this) Creative Recreation will have one of the biggest years in urban footwear; especially thanks to their “The Collection” line. You can check out more right here.

Givenchy Spring/Summer 2010 Sneakers

Being unorthodox in fashion, can truly also mean being an innovator. Spring/Summer 2010 is coming up, and the competition for revolutionary footwear is heated; I can honestly say Givenchy’s footwear for the season is battling for the top spot in creativity. The sneakers come in a low-top cut right below the ankle, and a super high-top that runs all the way to the middle of your shin. The sneakers come in the regular white and black leather colorway, but also in a very vibrant metallic gold patent leather colorway; that you won’t see from other designers. The other interesting thing on these sneakers is the mid-foot straps, and void in material on the super high-tops; not to mention a very stylish gum sole. These may not be for everyone, but if you do rock these; you will easily stand out in a crowd.

The brand that we all know and love gives us a sneak peek into what the Spring/Summer of 2010 will hold. Maison Martin Margiela, the iconic brand, unveils two of their new sneakers for the S/S season (the velcro triple strapped sneaker is a previous shoe, just in a new colorway). First, we find ourselves looking at a forest green and gumsole, velcro triple strap trainer; this pair is one of my favorites the brand has ever made. But what really catches your eye, is a pair of low top sneakers doused in paint, and chipped to give off that iconic deconstructed fashion look we have come accustomed to seeing from Martin Margiela and his team (well, now since Margiela left; we are used to seeing from his team). Check out more images of the preview after the jump.

Dior Homme High Top Sneakers for Spring 2010

Kris Van Assche and the people at Dior Homme bring us their high top’s for Spring 2010. Now if you can remember, these were previewed months back, and look much like some of the Kris Van Assche brand high tops as well; that’s a perk of being a creative director and having your own brand. These high tops come in either black, beige, white, or a light gray; all with a white sole. Kris Van Assche has been known to love high tops, and create very interesting kinds of sneakers. If you look at the lacing, it comes from the back of the ankle, and pulls around and ties at the top of the tongue; which also means the laces will be much longer than usual. Not to mention, the shoes include a zipper heading from the ankle to the heel. Kris Van Assche and Dior Homme have simply outdone themselves with these sneakers.
