Trainers of the Week: Gucci patchwork hi-tops
Gucci has always had a sporty edge at the core of its design ethos, and with sports luxe making big waves this season, you can be sure to see plenty of the style represented by the brand. A new crop of trainers has just appeared on our radar, and we're loving the choice of colours and clean lines in this patchwork hi-top; an all-leather sneaker with distinctive embossed Gucci paneling and a streamlined shape. They're £385 over at ASOS, new in this week.
The trainers comprise some of this season's biggest colour trends, including pale mint green and tomato red on the padded side sections. The look is held together by a stripped-down white, channeling the bare, 'unfinished' aesthetic that has been so big on the catwalks. A pair of smart yet sporty shoes like this will be a wardrobe essential this season, so if you can't afford the likes of Gucci, look out for similar styles at Kurt Geiger, River Island and other High Street stores. Sports luxe is on its way, and trainers just keep on getting posher!
