The athletic-inspired sneaker invasion into fashion houses and runways is far from a new trend, but it’s still going stronger than ever.
Styles such as Balenciaga’s popular Speed Knit and upcoming Race Runner, Golden Goose’s basketball and tennis-inspired looks and Valentino’s camouflage-covered runners remain some of the best sellers at luxury retailers.
If you’re looking for ways to take on the athleisure look while maintaining a touch of sophistication, these sneakers will get the job done.
