L.A. based footwear enthusiasts Creative Recreation debuted their redefined Spring 2012 Solano sneaker today, expressing a more sleek look than we are use too. Constructed using quilted silk, each pair of high tops gleams as the sun penetrates their sleek exterior, conveying a clean-cut, polished look absent of most lifestyle sneakers.
We have all experienced the problem of a pair of shoes looking too bulky for a slim legged pant, or vice versa, but the Solano offers a solution to this predicament. By unfastening the zipper located around the neck of the shoe, the Solano transforms from a fitted high top, to a sneaker that accommodates a baggy cuff, giving these kicks two thumbs up in the versatility department.
Additionally featuring premium leather uppers, a rubber sole, and tasteful detailing, Creative Recreation’s newly fashioned Solano are a steal at 100USD.
