Take on the urban jungle with Gucci’s luxe high-tops in minimal black leather, enlivened with tiger appliqué at the ankle. Sleek design makes these more sophisticated than your everyday kicks, whilst a thick sole gives you the support you need for a day pounding the pavement. Versatile and durable, these are the shoes to carry you from the office to the club, and all the way back again.
For those who never won at Sports’ Day, Fendi presents sneakers in breathable stretch yarn and sporty stripes. Harness your athletic potential with a functional rubber groove sole, sure to get you moving in double-time. Not to worry if running’s not your forte: these stylish trainers shine brightest as a fashion statement.
These grey Adidas Originals emerge as an eclectic synthesis of three of the brand’s vintage ‘80s silhouettes: the Rising Star, Micro Pacer and Boston Super. More than just a blast from a past, these prime knit trainers combine a striking aerodynamic design and a softly undulating sole for a truly futuristic aesthetic. The secret to retro style is taking the best and leaving the rest, something the team at Adidas have down to a tee.
After over twelve years in the game, Alexander Wang still reigns supreme as the champion of sports in high fashion. His collaboration with Adidas Originals sees him lend his discerning eye for design to one of the world’s most recognisable brands: a guaranteed recipe for sublime streetwear. Here, the modern master blurs the lines between sneaker and shoe with durable design interpreted in light-weight fabric.
Calling all art fans: these sumptuous high-tops from Giuseppe Zanotti Design’s Backstage Collection are true works of art, hand-sculpted from the finest materials. The rich blue pigment (applied by hand, of course) welcomes comparison to Yves Klein’s “International Blue”. Perfect for those longing to add an avant-garde edge to their everyday look.
