Dior B23 High Top “KAWS X Kim Jones” Review
Description
Part of Dior’s capsule collection with street artist KAWS, the Dior B23 High Top “KAWS x Kim Jones” is the luxury brand’s attempt to ride on the streetwear trend. Sporting the luxury house’s massive, eye-catching oblique print, the high top’s black and white upper comes in durable textile accented with transparent lining and zigzag seams, and a black outline on the cream top sole provides a stark contrast. Dior branding comes on the side sole, plus the reinvented “bee” is incorporated on the bottom sole adding a subtle artistic touch.

Nothing special design-wise
Overpriced for a relatively uncreative pair of sneakers

Made in collaboration with street artist KAWS, the Dior B23 High Top “KAWS X Kim Jones” is Dior’s nod to the highly trendy and successful streetwear inspired collections of luxury brands. Quite late in the game, the high top features the obvious, in your face Dior branding built with black and white translucent textile. A modified “bee” branding tops the bottom sole.
