Sportswear continues to be one of the hottest trends of Spring-Summer 2017, especially in footwear. Sneakers are the essential accessory to complete the perfect men’s casual look.
Futuristic styles, 1970s-inspired details, canvas slip-ons and bright colours are the main features of this season’s most popular sneakers.
Balenciaga chooses neoprene and combines it with contrasting electric blue rubber soles; Kenzo reinterprets the classic canvas slip-ons in the most diverse patterns, including the familiar House logo; Marni chooses minimalist lines and shapes reminiscent of the classic running shoes, but the atypical approach of the brand creates a sophisticated footwear that synthesizes the aesthetics of the fashion house.
Designer Marc Jacobs takes inspiration from the past by opting for contrasting, brightly coloured styles, while New Balance prefers tone on tone combinations and delicate colours like beige and dark brown. Be Positive sneakers recall yesteryear world of tennis: shoes are entirely made of white nappa leather with optical black details and stitching; the seventies world of tennis is also featuring in the Royal Republiq collection, but here, the leather maintains its natural colour while the white rubber sole represents the synthesis of the brand’s attention to detail. Nothing is left to chance.
Nike Air offers a wide range of sneakers that will satisfy everybody’s taste: the “Huarache” style is achieved by using skillfully combined fluorescent colours; the “Sock Dart” range, as its name suggests, fits like a sock and is the epitome of Nike Air comfort.
