If you like kicks, then you should’ve put a heel on it (or whatever Beyoncé said).
After beating Balenciaga‘s X-Pander and Miu Miu‘s kitten-heeled sneakers, you must face the final sneaker-heel boss: Ancuta Sarca’s Nike heels.
For Ancuta Sarca’s latest rollout, the brand links up with Browns Fashion for an exclusive collection of Swoosh’d sneaker-mules and pumps.
Ancuta Sarca’s Nike collection materializes as pointed-toe heels crafted using upcycled Nike sneakers, resulting in footwear ranging from $697 FlyKnit mules to $789 neon mesh-leather pumps.
Essentially, Sarca, the face behind the namesake label, reworks Nike’s diverse assortment of high-tech materials on chic stiletto and kitten heels.
While preserving its chic sensibilities, Ancuta Sarca also hones on its athletic side, appropriately naming the shoes after renowned sports cars like the Bugatti, Ferrari, and Mustang.
When it comes to the fashion girls who live for heels just as much as sneakers, Ancuta Sarcra’s Nike heels are genuinely for those who can do both.
Arguably spearheading the trend, the London-based designer is knee-deep in the sneaker-heel game, having launched her eponymous label with the hybrid footwear front and center in 2019.
I mean, the sneaker-heel is Ancuta Sarca! It’s deeply rooted in the brand’s DNA.
Since the label’s debut, Sarca’s Nike heels have taken over Instagram and runways, with some puzzled and others utterly obsessed with the designer’s eco-friendly sneaker heels made from old Nike kicks.
With the icon Cher as an obsessed stan of Ancuta Sarca’s heels (calling it: Rihanna‘s got next), I doubt the designer is worried about negative comments from internet trolls.
With its heeled Nike sneaker concepts stocked at SSENSE, Harvey Nichols, and now Browns Fashion, Ancuta Sarca nor the trainer-heel craze is going anywhere anytime soon, especially if Rih gets her hands on a pair.
