Paul Smith has put together a classic casual sneaker as part of its spring / summer 2010 lineup, available in white and black with perforated leather. The shoe adds unique design elements with a layered outsole, and matching stitched in panels on the side. And of course we couldn’t expect Paul Smith to adhere to a rigid black and white color scheme – he’s added his signature striped piping around the heel and on a lace lock. So if you’re looking for a solid summer sneak, head over to Paul Smith.
Pierre Hardy rocks trainers in the Spring/Summer 2010 collection with a creative vision. A sophisticated array of D-ring loafers, high tops and time-honoured Hardy aesthetics makes the set versatile and varied. The colour palette is classic and functional, but definitely not bland or flavourless. Taking a stab at the D-ring can often result in cheap and simple footwear. Yet, with the attention to detail and focus towards quality that has come to characterize Pierre Hardy, it is no wonder that these trainers are worn only by the most confident and refined sneakerheads.
