FN’s resident shoe columnist Stacey Griffith, senior master instructor at SoulCycle, is back with her pick of the week.
This time around, Griffith chooses a high-end take on the high-top sneaker, which so happens to match her red Adidas x Pharrell jacket (pictured above). And since the fitness instructor is known for her extensive sneaker collection (you can see her in our #Fnsneakertakeover shoot here), we would count her taste as one to trust.
“The Givenchy tartan Tyson high-top (similar style found here) is one of the most beautifully designed sneakers to hit the scene,” Griffith said. “I’m not sure whether it’s the thick layered rubber sole that turns me on or the colored rolled piping and star-studded velcro strap. This shoe is loaded with design genius, right down to the back of the mid-heel ribbing.
“It’s tough to find a high-top that can be worn by both men and women. So ladies, ditch the boyfriend jeans and start wearing these sneakers instead,” she quipped.
