New York’s a playground, indeed: The Lake and Stars take us back to the blacktop with these dope-as-! Nike high-tops, custom-designed for the lingerie brand.

Metal hardwear toughens the shoe, but fear not, soft-hearted: the muscle is balanced by a goofy-plush tongue and rain-be-damned black suede trim.
