These shoes are made for walking … honestly! Because this season there’s no need to choose between fashion and comfort. Athleisure, a sport and leisurewear combo, is everywhere you turn. Sports shoes – previously strictly limited to the gym – have now made it onto the international catwalks.ft.
Comics and logos
The Archlight sneakers by Louis Vuitton are a must-have for fashionistas: rather than a big logo, their eye-catching feature is their wavy soles. The Cloudbust models by Prada and the high-cut kicks by Emporio Armani have a similarly striking effect. At Alexander McQueen it’s colours that are the most striking feature, with trainers in blue, red and black.
Balenciaga (available at Amicis) and Saint Laurent, on the other hand, have caught our attention with their pointy soles and retro flair. Prada with colourful comics. And there’s no mistaking the sneakers by Bottega Veneta with their signature woven details.
