Ferragamo Flyknits? The Sneakers That Stole the Show

At Salvatore Ferragamo, a stretch sneaker ushered in a new era of modernity.

People often forget that Ferragamo himself is credited with inventing the platform. A striped chunky sport sole paid homage to house codes (the original rainbow style from the Twenties), while knitted uppers called to mind a decidedly current shoe phenomenon: knitted sneakers, whether they are Nike Flyknits or Adidas’ Yeezy, two of the most popular iterations.

There were also some espadrilles platform sandals, but pull-on sneakers were the real news here: sleek, speedy and a total send up. Call them Ferrageezys.
