So happy to announce Alyssa Record from @lyssainthesky as The Featured Collector Of The Week. Alyssa is no rookie when it comes down to collecting. She collects everything from Off-White to Rick Owens, and always styles it great. Today I am thrilled to reveal what she has to say about her Rick Owens Sock Sneakers investment.
Don't forget to follow @thefeaturedcollector and tag #thefeaturedcollector while posting your OOTD with these gems!
Current location: Los Angeles, Ca
Investment piece: Rick Owens Sock Sneakers
What do you love about this piece?: Love their versatility and ability to upgrade any basic look. Such a timeless and essential piece.
Any styling tips you suggest with this item?: Try wearing the socks with the 3/4-length pants to create dimension and an overall dramatic look. On top, I suggest keeping it simple by wearing a level tee with a layering tank underneath. It's a minimalist's dream. I love the transition between the different textures!
Maintenance suggestions?: I sprayed my shoes with leather protector before wearing them. You want to make sure to prevent any accidental liquid damage. I honestly hardly clean my socks, I prefer a worn in look. I think it gives the shoes character and shows that they only get better with time! When I'm not wearing my sock sneakers I store them away in their box for a little extra tlc.
Sizing suggestions?: I suggest to go a 1/2 size larger in this shoe. I am a true 38.5, but decided to purchase a 39 to allow myself additional room. Sock sneakers tend to put a little more pressure on the front of the foot, which is why going up a 1/2 size isn't a bad idea.
