Every season, there is a new release, a new style, a new train to jump on. But what if you’re getting tired of throwaway fashions? What if (whisper now) you’re starting to think your mother was right that quality is more important than quantity? How is a fashion-conscious sneaker fanatic supposed to do his best if he has no more shoes in his wardrobe than Foot Locker? Basically, they buy investment parts. Sneakers that are made to last. Sneakers that can take advantage of today’s trends, but in a way smart enough to keep the business looking good 10 years from now. These sneakers aren’t going to be cheap, but that’s okay. You won’t need many. They may not be available in all shoe stores in the city. That is fine too. This is why the universe invented online shopping. They are probably not made by a brand that associates with sneakers. And that’s fine … as long as it is a brand that associates with quality. With expert craftsmanship and a firm belief that God is in the details. It will also help if this brand is fashion-conscious and has enough experience under its belt to know what will look good 4, 5, 6 years from now. If they have easy access to fine Italian leather, all the better. In other words, welcome to the world of designer sneakers. More specifically (that Italian reference wasn’t in vain, you know), welcome to the world of Valentino. If you thought Valentino was all about red carpet looks and expensive perfumes, get ready for a fashion awakening. Valentino makes sneakers. Really, very good shoes. The kind of sneakers you’ll never want to take off. Slippers like these.
Valentino leather sneakers with open stripe panel
Regardless of style, size, color, or anything else, all Valentino sneakers have two things in common. They are all really, really, ridiculously handsome and they are all incredibly comfortable. Take this pair of open striped paneled leather sneakers for a classic example. With a sleek, monochrome look, this is a refined sneaker that manages to accomplish the biggest challenge of all – the causal smart look. Whether you dress them smartly or casually, they will make your feet look good with a capital G. Classic but with enough personality to be distinctive (look at that crisscross leather strap), subtle but never boring (that bold graphic, is there a reason?), And with just the right amount of signature detail to account for its provenance (is it? You notice the Rockstuds signature on the rubber sole? Your resident office fashion snob will, too), there’s never been a better way to buckle up. As for the comfort side of things? Try sliding your feet into a pair and you will soon see it.
Valentino Bounce sneaker
Streetwear rubs shoulders with haute couture in Valentino Bounce, a sneaker that blends athletic sensibilities with haute couture details for a downright fabulous effect. Crafted from the finest Italian leather and featuring a lace-up front closure, an almond toe, an embossed logo to the rear, and a chunky rubber sole, these designer beauties combine our fashion obsession with logos (see the ‘VLTN’ dotted on the side) with our need for comfort (suffice it to say, you can forget about blisters when you have a pair of these tied to your feet). Best of all, you get all of this at a price that won’t make you cry (not too much, in any case).
