The christopher bates x mtv sneaker collab is finally here


Canadian designer Christopher Bates’ new high-end sneaker collab is the latest fashion tribute to the iconic MTV brand.

First unveiled at Toronto Fashion Week earlier this year, the sleek collection includes patent leather, blinding metallic finishes and edgy details like metal studs.

“They’ve got a bit of a rock ‘n’ roll, edgy vibe, of course, from the MTV side, but the more Italian design and manufacturing aesthetic from my side,” Bates said of the collection.

The super limited edition sneakers are available in three styles in both men’s and women’s sizing. Made in Italy, the collection is created using high-tech robots and laser-engraving.
