Kenzo’s ‘Kenzosmile Run’ trainers combine classic, retro-style vibes with more contemporary themes for a totally fresh and unique design.

Saint Laurent White SL/61 Leather Trainers
If there’s one thing that a good pair of white sneakers should do is embrace the versatility and effortlessness of off-duty styling. That’s exactly what you get with Saint Laurent’s timeless SL/61 Leather Trainer, a style that’s decidedly low-tempo in design, but anything other than low-quality in execution. Standout features like the masterful fusion of grained and smooth calf leathers and elegant gold-foil logo embossing speak volumes of the uncompromising craftsmanship that we’ve come to expect from such a prestigious luxury brand. The real masterstroke, however, is the way in which creative director Anthony Vaccarello manages to do all this without ever compromising on Saint Laurent’s signature ultra-cool and dramatic edge.
