Running Shoes Hit the Runway


Stan Smiths aren't the only sneakers worthy of a suit—this season, designers are introducing technical kicks that beg to be dressed up.

1. Valentino ($827)

2. Raf Simons ($555)

3. Salvatore Ferragamo ($550)

4. Y-3 ($295)

5. Balenciaga by Nicolas Ghesquiére ($485)

6. Common Projects ($450)

7. Missoni for Converse ($200)

The Inspiration:
Valentino

"This season was about creating a fusion of contrast. We did this by mixing classic ready-to-wear with edgy accessories, like sleek running shoes in various colors and camouflage patchwork."
Maria Grazia Chiuri, lead designer

"Our intention was to create authentic sneakers with technical characteristics, but with unexpected colors and personal customizing."
Pierpaolo Piccioli, lead designer

—Styling by Jill Edwards at Halley Resources.
