As Loewe’s Spring 2018 collection hit the runway during Paris Fashion Week today, there was one standout accessory that was impossible to overlook: ultra pointy-toe sneakers.Taking the luxury sneaker to new heights (literally), the curved upward shoes posed sneakerheads’ favorite question, “What are THOSE?

Inspired by the traveling woman, the Jonathan Anderson-designed footwear seemingly reference Mexican pointy boots, which are extremely curved upwards boots worn by men in North-Central Mexico. Loewe’s rendition of the pointed shoes included luxe reptile-embossed sneakers, suede, and several bold colorways.

Of course, people on Twitter couldn’t help but notice the references to both elves and Aladdin…

While fashion’s sneaker obsession likely isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, will these pointy renditions become the next street style must-haves?
