So many of you have told us you want a casual shoe that didn’t look like you’d been down the gym or out for a run. No, you wanted a more refined, smart-casual look in high-quality leather, right? Well, we’ve come up with not one but three answers to help you with this; great for weekends, perfect when styled with jeans and slim trousers and just the ticket for work wear that doesn’t have to look like work wear. We’ve added 3 smart trainers to the collection – and they’re already going down a storm.
Combining sporty styling with hand-crafted premium leathers, we’re embracing this season’s sports luxe trend with our comfy, casual and cool Bilac, Bariri and Bastos leather trainers.
Step out in style in Bilac this Spring; available in Off-white, for more of a minimalist look, or Bronze, if you’re looking to play down a smart-casual outfit. These men’s trainers also feature a smooth leather finish that’s soft to touch (both on the outside and inside with their soft sheepskin lining), but don’t let that fool you because underneath is a crossover rubber sole that gives good all-weather grip.
Perfect for all smart-casual and evening occasions, day-to-day practicality is also a key feature. With that in mind, their sleek, lightweight structure gives all the support and comfort of an athletic shoe, giving you the best of both worlds.
For texture and detail, look no further than our Bastos criss-cross leather woven slip on trainer. Ideal for someone who plain leather doesn’t quite cut it anymore, this easy to slide on and off leather trainer, available in grained Cognac or Castanho, is your weekend go-to if it’s all day comfort you’re after. Classic canvas styled rubber soles feature orange contrasting non-slip grips for more of a contemporary twist, while ankle padding ensures additional support.
Style with a buttoned down denim shirt and jeans for an off-duty feel, but if you’re feeling extra daring, try with a blue suit and shirt (leave the tie at home) on a casual Friday.
Thankfully, long gone are the days where you’d be judged for wearing trainers to anywhere other than the gym. And while you might think (we thought it too) that a canvas trainer with brogue detailing shouldn’t work, our inquisitive nature got the better of us and from that came Bariri. Available in a vintage brushed Navy or smooth Havana brown, waxed laces and detailed perforations add a layer of premium quality you expect from all our men’s shoes and boots.
Although there are many ways to compliment this style this Spring, we recommend light-coloured chinos with a lightweight blazer.
