On Wednesday, Simone Biles posted a shoe selfie to her Instagram Story, showing off a new pair of kicks that any fan of the Logomania trend would want. In the background of the photo, you can see the soccer field where Biles’ fiance, Jonathan Owens, often practices. Front and center were his Nike sneakers, completely covered in logo-printed Dior canvas, atop the railing. The sneakers feature white rope laces and black bungees that criss-cross each shoe. In a video following that post, she stands in front of a mirror, wearing black leggings and a white crop top, which shows the shoes from all angles. Taking a slow zoom-in, Biles gave fans an ultraclose peek at the bold footwear. In a third video, Biles revealed that there was not one but two different pairs – one brown and one black. The caption read, “Ok I’m obsessed. If you see me wearing this nonstop, mind your work.”
Two summers ago, Dior and Nike teamed up on a pair of Air Jordan high-tops, made of gray and white leather with a Dior-branded sock on the side. Biles’ sneakers, however, have never been seen anywhere other than on the gymnast’s own feet. Can they be a custom order? Or, perhaps, a special prerelease of a big drop? Only time will tell. Until then, the rest of us Olympians will just have to jump on them from afar.
Even when Biles is having a cozy date night that includes practicing with her husband on her team, her style often manages to capture just the right mix of casual and trendy — yesterday, for example, the 25-year-old gymnast teased herself in a Texans uniform for an undisclosed project. did She and Owens regularly indulge in expertly coordinated date-night styles, so the real question is: What did she wear after practice?
