STYLES FROM THE ARCHIVES
No longer confined to the world of sports, sneakers have fast become ingrained into our daily footwear choices, from smart-casual looks at the office to street style guises at Fashion Week. This global ubiquity had humble beginnings in the 19th century with the invention of the plimsoll and later, the creation of the world's first running shoe by Adidas in 1925.
Now, distinguished houses such as Valentino Garavani, Prada and Balenciaga are crafting their own unique adaptions for the contemporary man, with their respective Rockrunner, Cloudbust Thunder and Triple S silhouettes. Other brands are circling back to their archives to revive vintage styles, such as ASICS' GEL-Lyte, and Nike's Waffle Racer.
Referencing the past with a futuristic attitude, Bottega Veneta has created its own version of the original plimsoll shoe, in a neoprene and leather iteration.
