Burberry's New Sneakers Are Inspired By This Classic Boot — Here's How To Secure Yours ASAP


You may better know Burberry for its iconic trench or the new influencer-loved TB bags. But, there's a new accessory from the brand to add to your must-have list: Burberry's Arthur sneakers which happen to be exactly what your wardrobe needs for the cooler months ahead. Currently available for pre-order, the new chunky trainer from the luxury design house will arrive at your door just in time for you to show them off during the holiday season. But, when it comes to securing a pair for yourself, you'll want to move sooner rather than later as this highly-anticipated launch is bound to sell out, fast.

Making their debut on the Fall/Winter 2019 runway, these sneakers were designed as a part of Riccardo Tisci's "Tempest" collection as an all-weather footwear option that's as functional as it is cool. The new Arthur sneaker brings a rugged streetwear edge to a sleek shape that makes for head-turning styles. As for its name? The new design was named after the 1st Duke of Wellington, Arthur Wellesley, who turned the wellington boot into an iconic style in the early 19th century. The reference to Wellesley can also be seen visually in the silhouette of the sneaker — the rubber sole and overshoe are a nod to the classic rain boot. And though the designs are heavy on the fashion factor, the rugged inspiration is proof that they'll hold up against winter weather too.

A true sneaker and boot hybrid, the women's lineup includes a range of styles all boasting luxe textures, such as the suede and crystals on this eye-catching black pair that's priced at $1,550. Meanwhile, other styles bring a pop of vibrant hues, like this multicolor style or this punchy red-trimmed pair. Both up for grabs for $790, these two styles (along with many of the others) will provide a grounding force for all of your winter looks. Plus, they are a great way to tackle this season's hiking boot trend with ease.

The printed styles are definitely not to be missed either, and if you're still embracing the logo-mania trend take a peek at this $790 brown-hued style that uses an environmentally conscious canvas monogram print. Of course, it wouldn't be a Burberry collection without the use of the iconic check — a style that is also priced at $790 and brings a whole new sporty feel to an already timeless print.

And with animal prints still going strong, you might consider a incorporating leopard motif into your look with this spotted Arthur sneaker for $850. Featuring a zip and lace-up closure, the bold style's neutral color palette will allow it to be paired up with a range of shades sitting in your closet. Not to mention, it's great for mixing and matching patterns for everyday.
