The summer is all about showing off fits and staying cool in the process, and a sneaker like the Alexander McQueen Oversized sneakers is the perfect low-top luxury option for your summertime fit.

Alexander McQueen has been at the forefront of British fashion since his start in 1992. McQueen founded his brand with the inspiration of “a love of nature and understanding of British history,” says global luxury group Kering. Despite McQueen’s passing in 2012, the brand continues to create unique and innovative pieces like the Alexander McQueen Oversized sneaker. The sneaker first made an appearance in 2015 and debuted as part of Alexander McQueen’s spring/summer collection. That same year, the adidas Stan Smith experienced a resurgence in sneaker and streetwear culture, leading to a plethora of low-cut white tennis shoes in the market, but none quite like McQueen’s iteration. Even though the sneaker was originally offered exclusively for men, the brand later developed a women’s version based on the sneaker’s initial positive response from fans of the fashion house. The sneaker is now in its seventh year of production and has been remade in a variety of colorways, with one of its most popular being the Ivory Black pair. Its versatile colors make it a great option to pair with a variety of looks, even with its oversized midsole.

The 3/4 Sleeve tee features a black cotton oversized fit for a breezier look for the summer. A Dove graphic on the back adds a hint of color and will match the white leather on these Oversized sneakers.
