Christopher Bates launches sneaker collection with MTV
Canadian menswear designer Christopher Bates has officially launched his new high-end sneaker collaboration with MTV.
The limited-edition collection offers three unisex styles available in both men’s and women’s sizing: The Noctem Hightop (black), The Argentum Hightop (silver) and The Aurum Lowtop (gold). All styles, which were designed in Milan and produced in Italy where the designer is now based, feature metal stud detailing along the toe and heel, and hints of red for a contemporary look combined with a touch of 90’s nostalgia.
MTV’s logo and Bates’ signature kiss motif can also be found on the limited edition collection where just 75 pairs of each model was produced.
“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,” said Bates of the sneaker collection.
The collection first made its debut at Toronto Fashion Week in February alongside the designers Fall/Winter 2018 collection.
The hightop styles are available for $396 CAD, while the lowtop version retails for $360 CAD.
The menswear designer first entered footwear in 2016 through a collaboration with Canadian retailer Harry Rosen offering more classic styles like Chelsea boots and oxfords.
The MTV x Christopher Bates sneaker collection is exclusively available at christopherbates.com and at Canadian retailer GotStyle.
