Feel the need to hit the street in sneakers fresh off the runway? Here’s something to scratch that itch: The black leather and suede high top sneaker from Marni. This shoe blends old-school style, street-smart attitude and the luxe texturing the hip Italian design house is known for.
Part of Marni’s 2015 spring and summer collection, this sneaker is all about the details. The soft black leather gives it a laid-back vibe, while suede paneling at the collar, sides and heel and a matte rubberized band applique in front kick the look up a notch. The ridges on the rounded to lend the sneaker an industrial feel. Especially cool is the tonal stitching and lace-up closure, giving the sneaker a unified look. The shape is sleeker and slimmer than high top sneakers of old, resulting in a silhouette that’s more boot than bulky sneaker. In other words, this isn’t your father’s high top sneaker.
