Despite being born in the U.K., and never having lived across the pond, the word “sneakers” seems to be popping into my vocabulary more and more. Alas poor “trainers”, is your end almost nigh?
Perhaps this switch is in part because the kinds of trainers I like are generally not for training purposes, and are much better suited to…well…sneaking.
I wouldn’t dream of getting deliberately sweaty in these beautifully made leather styles by Feit.
The queen of trainers: these “greige” veg-tanned suede lace-up low-tops are designed to be worn without socks. The leather linings provide plenty of breathability and comfort.
These hi-tops remind me of the classic white boots of the figure skater. They give a street look when worn with the leather laces as pictured (no visible bows please!).
In the most natural-looking “sand” hue, these seamless slip-ons represent the ultimate in sophisticated sports-chic.
In some workplaces, you could even get away with the smarter black version with your tailored trousers.
Good-looking, comfortable footwear, made to last by true craftspeople.
