I have meant to do a post on designer sneakers for a while now. I’ve seen so many gorgeous designer sneakers that I’ve wanted; but I’m still not in a position yet to go on a designer sneakers shopping spree. I didn’t win Powerball last night.
Dreaming of designer sneakers
Giuseppe Zanotti Design colour block wedge sneakers
White leather hi-top sneakers from Giuseppe Zanotti Design featuring a round toe, a thick white rubber sole, a multicoloured suede paneling at the front ides and a rear, a zip detail at the back of the heel, a designer embossed leather plaque at the tongue and a front lace-up fastening with zip detailing either side.
I probably said somewhere already on this blog that I’ve never really been a huge high top sneaker fan; but the high top sneakers that are in style today have converted me.
I’d have a room just for high top designer sneakers in my dream shoe closet. Because I’ve seen so many I like.
Probably my first designer shoe purchase would be a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti high top sneakers; but in all likelihood by the time I can afford a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti high top sneakers, if the day ever comes when I can afford a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti high top sneakers, they will be out of style.
Miu Miu black Leather concealed wedge sneakers
Miu Miu bring a touch of gritty to their typically pretty standard with these concealed wedge sneakers spelling out absolute attitude. A dark decadence in black leather” quilted texture and a metallic silver toe-cap incorporate a chic element as an elevating platform and oversized Velcro closure make them an edge-encompassing silhouette.
I don’t typically love black sneakers but I totally love these Miu Miu black Leather concealed wedge designer sneakers. The sneakers feature a 70mm/2.75 inch wedge heel 30mm/1.25 inch sole designer-stamped toe cap. They are lace-ups with velcro strap and zipped side. Insole and sole of leather.
My Gucci Top 3
The high-top sneaker gets its most glamorous makeover yet with Gucci’s crystal-embellished satin pair. The chic bronze colouring anchors the statement” making them work around the clock.
The staple sneaker gets an impacting update with Gucci’s colour-block satin high-tops. Show them off next to an all-black ensemble.
Gucci’s recognisable double “G” logo is given modern appeal with these printed canvas sneakers. Highlighted with magenta leather trims” this sleek pair is best with cropped trousers and skinnies.
Personal anecdote? I used to say that even if my fortunes changed and I became rich I wouldn’t spend hundreds of dollars on clothes and shoes. In a way I still kind of feel that way. I find it hard to imagine myself buy a pair of shoes for $200. Most of these designer sneakers are $500 and well above that price. They look great and I’d love to have them; but I keep thinking I’d feel like a fool for spending so much money on shoes even if I could afford it.
Maybe if the more expensive designer shoes are more comfortable–I’d pay the high price for the guarantee of comfort. It can be hard to find a comfortable pair of shoes even sneakers. so if it was the case that you had to spend more money to get comfort then it would be worth it to me to spend the money. Otherwise if all you’re getting is just a feeling of being special because you’re wearing expensive high end designer shoes I don’t know if I’d be able to buy any of these designer sneakers without feeling foolish. That’s not saying I wouldn’t buy them. I would. I’d just feel foolish after.
