Ten Loves: Valentino Garavani Crochet Sneakers

Right boys, only a few more days till you can get out those slippers and into your favourite kicks to head down the pubs (albeit in a socially distanced beer garden), the shops and most probably the barbers. Bit tired of the trainers that have been gathering dust at the bottom of your wardrobe? Not to worry, Valentino has sorted you out by opting for a trainer that is sure to give your feet a bit of a breather.

The house has got its crochet needles and macramè knots out for this one – like we’re sure many of you have done during lockdown. First introduced on the SS21 catwalk, the beautifully styled Valentino Garavani Crochet sneakers are an exemplary expression of creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli’s vision.

The elegant macramè – traditionally used for couture gowns – is seen, for the first time, in the sneaker realm in black, grey, yellow and orange zest. Each shoe is individually made in three layers by the graft of human hands, allowing room for each one to be ever so slightly different from the last. Who could turn down an exclusive like that?
