As the summer winds down, many have left the world’s urban locales and jetted off to quieter, more relaxing spots. But when the cities empty out, the tourists pour in, evidenced in Milan where visitors from around the world took to the streets for site seeing and shopping.
In what might be the summer of the sneaker, many chose bold and bright pairs for walking around the city. Our photographer caught tourists wearing everything from Rick Owens high-top leather sneakers to a purple and pink ombré Nike laceless pair. And of course it wouldn’t be a street style story without a pair of Adidas. One tourist was spotted in a pair of Pharrell’s Adidas Superstar Supercolor sneakers in bright aqua blue.
We also spotted some other major brands and labels including Keen, Birkenstock, Isabel Marant and Valentino.
In just a few short weeks, the residents of Milan will have surely returned in anticipation of Milan Fashion Week Sept. 23-28 showcasing the spring ’16 collections. Designers showing there include Max Mara, Fendi, Emilio Pucci, Prada, Emporio Armani, Versace and Jil Sander among many others.
