Lexus knows all about style and luxury — just look at its lineup of vehicles. With that kind of a portfolio, it’s not too surprising that the upscale automaker is joining forces with famed Canadian menswear designer Christopher Bates to create a stylish new set of kicks.

Put a little more Lexus in your life

The Lexus UX Christopher Bates sneakers are designed to capture the same urban, adventurous spirit as the sophisticated crossover. Check out the UX-inspired design cues on these bad boys — like the perforated leather, racing stripes, and Circuit Red accents. When you view the shoes from behind, you can even spot a shape that’s reminiscent of the Lexus spindle grille. They also mirror the vehicle’s top-quality craftsmanship and premium materials.

Stunning designs by a Canadian icon

Robert Tsang, the Director of Lexus Canada, expressed pride and excitement for the automaker’s partnership with a beloved Canadian fashion designer. “Style and craftsmanship are core pillars of the Lexus brand so we‘re honoured to partner with iconic Canadian designer Christopher Bates,” he stated.

In addition to his partnership with Lexus, Christopher Bates has been making waves in the Canadian fashion scene. He was recently lauded as the Canadian Arts and Fashion Awards Menswear Designer of the Year, and he designed Air Canada’s spiffy new uniforms. Furthermore, he’s also collaborated with MTV, Harry Rosen, and markets his namesake clothing line at Nordstrom.

“Working with Lexus on this customized shoe collaboration has been an incredible experience, one I’m excited to finally debut,” said Christopher Bates. He also expressed that he sees a number of parallels between Lexus and his namesake brand, and hopes to forge a long-lasting partnership with the luxury automaker.
