The effortlessly stylish actor shows off the Parisian label’s new, wildly covetable Astroloubi sneaker.

An eternal truth of menswear is that every wildly stylish outfit starts with fantastic footwear. And with the first days of fall knocking on the door, it’s high time to ensure your closet is for the season switch ahead. When it comes to the most covetable sneaker for fall, look no further than the Astroloubi collection from Christian Louboutin. Luckily for you, we’ve tapped the always-stylish actor Darren Barnet to show you how the Astroloubi sneaker (and the capsule’s corresponding bucket hats) can elevate your autumnal wardrobe as we move from the summer heat into the coolness of fall.

“I love the versatility,” Darren says about the shoe. “It can be dressed up or down. It’s very comfortable and just enough of a statement without being over the top.” Take one look at the sneaker, and it’s easy to see what he means. The Astroloubi is a bold and streetwise sneaker that takes inspiration from the golden era of basketball and skate sneakers. Yet, it has been lovingly elevated beyond the sneakers of yesteryear. The classic silhouette has been tricked out with high-end details and fashion-forward finishes. Each sneaker is made in Italy and features iconic Christian Louboutin signatures like spiky studs and the splashy red sole. When designing a winning sneaker in 2023, you want a nostalgic throwback with a forward-looking edge, and the Astroloubi delivers both in spades. In other words, it’s the type of sneaker that looks equally as great when worn with your coziest sweatpants for a quick coffee run or with your waviest pleated trousers for a Friday night out.

Season after season, the throwback basketball silhouette continues to dominate the conversation regarding fashion-forward kicks. This one from Christian Louboutin only adds to the excitement. Some colorways skew stark and minimalist, while others feature bolder colors that make for a much flashier shoe. The fashionable Astroloubi bucket hats also make a perfect fall-time accessory if you want to add something unique to your outfit. Just like a great sneaker, the best bucket hat will take your look from plain to absolutely head-turning in the best way. Not to mention, it’s an excellent alternative to protect your dome from fall’s brisk chill when you want to give your trusty ole beanie a break.

“Everyone should own at least one pair,” he says. “It definitely makes putting together an outfit easier.” For Darren, he likes a timeless and straightforward approach to fashion. “Cuffed jeans, white tee shirt, sneakers,” he explains. “I think less is more for myself.” And when you keep things simple, you want every piece of your outfit—all the way down to your sneakers—to really count. You’ll find that the Astroloubi collection delivers bold style in a classic way. And, of course, leave it to Christian Louboutin to make a classic sneaker style feel entirely new again.

The Astroloubi makes a worthy addition to any closet for fall. It’s the perfect vehicle for all sorts of pants: from the perfect pair of worn-in vintage jeans and big-fitting chinos to rugged double-knee pants and wool, ready-to-fall-chill trousers. Whether your style skews more dressed up or errs on the casual side, it will easily slide right into your wardrobe. Even Darren knows the power of having a fantastic sneaker in your fall footwear rotation.
