The Christopher Bates x MTV Sneakers Have Landed
Let's just say we need a pair of each design immediately.
Your trainer wishlist is about to get that little bit longer as Christopher Bates just debuted a brand new sneaker collaboration with MTV at Toronto Fashion Week.
The Canadian designer presented a patent all-black sneaker with some pretty edgy studded detailing along the sole on the runway - and let's just say that we already a little bit obsessed.

The kicks are one of four unisex styles that will be available at Gotstyle this spring.
Chatting about the inspo for the collab, which mixes classic street style sensibility with a little MTV twist, designer of the moment Christopher, said: "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."
"It’s been something [MTV Canada president Jon Graham and I] had talked about for a while and it seemed like a great opportunity for both of our brands to do this collaboration," he adds.
We'd like a pair ASAP, please. Or maybe...four?
