LUPIN SEASON 2: THESE ARE ALL THE SNEAKERS IN THE HIT SERIES
In July 2021, Netflix released the latest season of the successful master thief. After the success of the first season, many fans were looking forward to the continuation of the adventures of Assane Diop, a character based on the novel Lupin. He is played by France’s most popular actor, Omar Sy. As in the first episodes, the master thief wears unusual sneakers with which he turns France upside down.
Here at Sneakerjagers read can more about all the Kicks in Season 1. Today we show you the sneakers of the second season ‘Lupin’.
Spoiler-Warning: If you haven’t seen the series yet, I suggest you do so now. Right now. Then come back and take a closer look at what kicks are in Lupin.
LOTS OF NIKE HEAT IN THE HIT SERIES LUPIN
Air Jordan 1 Mid ‘Yellow Toe’
Diop is still wearing the Nike AJ 1 Mid ‘Yellow Toe’ in the last episode of the first season, when the family is on their way to the beach. Props were paying attention, because the master thief is also wearing his AJ 1 Mids at the start of the new season. The Yellow Toe of 2019 impresses with a colorblocking of black, yellow and white. Of course, you’ll find the typical branding, like the Air Jordan Wings logo or the ‘Nike Air’ tongue label.
Air Jordan 1 High OG Patent ‘Fearless’
We also marvelled at these kicks in season 1, but they are now really something special and deserve a reappearance.
The Air Jordan 1 High OG Patent ‘Fearless’ was, as its name naturally suggests, part of the ‘Fearless’ collection and is meant to pay homage to Michael Jordan’s quote “Limits, like fear, are often just an illusion”. The red patent leather is clearly reminiscent of the Bulls, while the back in bright blue refers to the South Carolina Tar Heels.
Classic: Air Force 1
In the second episode, the Nike Air Force 1 briefly appears in a classic colorway. The black Swoosh is a nice contrast to the white upper.

Air Jordan 1 High ‘Shattered Backboard 3.0’
The Air Jordan 1 High ‘Shatterd Backboard 3.0’ released in 2019 lives up to its name. You can see some cracks and tears all over the patent leather upper, which gives the kicks a skilful vintage look. The colour combination of black and orange with the natural-coloured sole enhances the look.
The design was inspired by none other than – sure enough – Michael Jordan in a game in Trieste, Italy in 1985, when the basketball player smashed the blackboard, hence the name. The colours refer to the shirt Jordan wore in the first half of the game.
Air Force 1 Type White/University Gold
In 2019, they shook up the sneaker world: the first Air Force 1 Type ‘N354’ in the ‘Workshop’ look. Further colorways followed, including the ‘White/University Gold’. This sneaker also has the lettering ‘N354’ on the white upper, the Velcro fastener on the heel glows in yellow and the glued seam shines in white. The padded tongue and the overlays on the back hem in gold add a touch of class to the look.
Jordan 1 Mid ‘Grey Aqua’
This AJ 1 Mid ‘Grey Aqua’ in Lupin makes an equally elusive appearance. Made from premium tumbled leather and mesh, the pair features a black, grey and turquoise colour scheme. The Wings logo is located on the collar alongside a Jumpman motif embroidered on the tongue. You’ll find other classic AJ1 details like a perforated toe box and padded ankles, of course.
AND WHAT ELSE?
Besides Diop’s hyped sneakers, there are of course more shoes that appear in the French series. For example, Claire, Diop’s ex-wife and mother of his son, wears a classic Converse All Star Chuck 70 Hi Black in the flashbacks.
Diop’s best friend, on the other hand, relies on the Finnish brand Karhu and the Fusion 2.0 model. Normally, the antiques dealer wears elegant leather shoes, but for his scene as a pickpocket, he needs sporty kicks for his escape. Karhu is not far behind, as this brand also has its origins in running.
The upcoming Finnish brand Karhu has a lot of hut stuff to offer. Read more about the brand and their styles here.
The villain who kidnaps Diop’s son on behalf of Pelligrini is the only one wearing Nike besides Diop. The Nike Air Max 270 React in black is an absolutely timeless shoe and provides excellent cushioning thanks to the large, visible Air unit.
