Ashley Graham Commits Footwear’s Biggest Faux Pas in Biker Shorts & ‘Neptune Green’ Nikes
Ashley Graham may have just committed the biggest shoe faux pas - but really, we can't blame her for this ensemble.
The model, who is currently expecting her second child with husband Justin Ervin, took to Instagram over the weekend to show off her cool leisure style. The ensemble layered a light green buttoned shirt with classic black biker shorts.

Biker shorts were made famous in 2020 for a newfound appreciation for athleisure and comfortable clothing spotted in the past year alone with Hailey Baldwin, Tracee Ellis Ross, Emily Ratajkowski, and a host of other great celebs. In 2021, the casual silhouette will remain an integral part of the stars' leisure rotations.
The finishing touches to Graham's own edgy take on the trend came from Nike. The Swoosh brand has selected the Kasina brand of former professional skateboarder EunHyuk Lee for a South Korean streetwear variant of the classic dunk low silhouette. Debuting in September 2020, the silhouette features Neptune Green suede overlays with a silver swoosh and a contrasting blue outsole and heel counter. While it was once sold for $ 120, the sneaker is now resold on StockX and GOAT for over $ 1,500 to $ 2,120.
The sneakers themselves weren't a faux pas, however. Graham's daring move came from the way she posed her shoes and flexed her toes in such a way that a permanent crease can appear in the leather
"I creased these sneakers for this shot and it was worth it," wrote the model in her caption.

As for Graham himself, the runway star knows a thing or two about trendy pieces. Throughout the fashion month, the model runs in shows from big brands such as Etro and Fendi, with appearances in previous seasons for Tommy Hilfiger, Prabal Gurung, Dolce & Gabbana, Christian Siriano and other top labels.
When it comes to her personal style, the same rules still apply. Designer clothes in the supermodel's wardrobe include everything from Marina Rinaldi and Gucci to Christopher John Rogers and Fear of God Essentials. In the case of shoes, there are labels such as Porte & Paire, Adidas, Schutz and even Nike x Sacai for heels and sneakers.
