Remember when a pair of sneakers were just something to wear to workout in?
Those days are gonezola people. High end designers have gotten into the game and the sneaks are snazzy!
The prices can be startling too. But for art and fashion we happily pay.
Golden Goose Deluxe Brand, from Italy is a major player in the designer sneaker club. Basic cut, either low or high top, ALWAYS with the signature leather star, then add sparkles, suede or buttery soft Italian leather with an unbelievably comfortable insole. The $500 price tag is up there but once you try, you fall in love and buy.
Ports 1961 knot sneaker is a yummy design that translates beautifully season after season. Leather, satin, velvet or the newest offering multi-print knot is establishing itself as a major contender. A $700 price tag, and rarely can you find them on sale.
All of which can be matched to a gorgeous handbag or clothing piece from Gucci’s couture or ready to wear line. Grazie Miele Alessandro!
Alessandro has deemed sales are no longer part of Gucci’s retail existence, so buying a pair of the sneakers is really a smart investment, at a cool $950. (clearly I am the one you need to help you justify a purchase…)
Saint Laurent made it exceptionally easy for reversecommuter to choose her sneakers – palm trees!
