Valentino continues its strong foray into the luxury sneaker world with the ‘Color-Block Stripe Leather Sneaker’. The Milanese fashion house updates the silhouette with a bold black stripe across an otherwise clean, white, leather upper, subverting the classic tennis stylings into something far more potent. At the heel you can find the brand’s signature studs, although these are softened by their white tone. Another key detail is the partially hidden lace, which sits beneath a strap-like section of the tongue.

You can find the sneakers in a series of color options at oki-ni.
