The Best Horsehair High-Tops: The $970 Tailleur Sneakers by Dior

Dior_072111_1.jpg

Sneakers—they're casual go-to footwear for rough, dirty, outdoor activities, right? Well, if we ever get our hands on a pair of Dior Homme's new Tailleur sneakers, we're going to treat them with the care few women lavish on their Louboutins. Why? Just look at them. But it's not just their obvious beauty that would move us to treat them with kid gloves. Instead of creating canvas or leather uppers, Dior crafted the Tailleurs out of the finest material—horsehair toile and beige linen—making these immaculately designed high-tops examples of high fashion. To top it off, the laces and heels of the sneakers are white calfskin leather. At $970, these kicks belong on the runway, not the running track.

Tailleur sneakers by Dior Homme, $970 available at Dior stores.
