Comfort and style is something that used to rarely go together but over the last several seasons, and mainly with introduction of Dior Fusion sneakers back in 2014, fashion has officially embraced easy-going footwear.
Comfortable doesn’t mean boring, if anything designer sneakers have to work twice as hard to make a statement, which means brands are choosing the best fabrics, exotic leathers, dazzling embellishment and intricate embroidery.
Personalisation also plays a big role in making this slip-on-and-go shoe desirable. Gucci recently launched such service with mytheresa.com while Dolce & Gabbana went all out with a wide selection of patches and hand painted decorations. Laces also got an upgrade with houses like Fendi swapping the standard ones for velvet or ribbon while others turn to texture with fur and snakeskin patches.
There is an abundance of styles to fit any taste, from sporty that work as a contrast to your favourite tailored suit, to elegant shapes that will hold their own against an evening dress.
