Designer sneakers and collaborations between athletic wear and luxury brands are nothing new, but this collection for Gola, by Christian Lacroix, still really stands out. In my eyes, these trainers look much better than the ones by Alexander McQueen for Puma.
The Golas are made from fine leather, and the 19th Century inspired embroidery and embossing really make these stand out.
They are not out until 2009, and I suspect they will be pretty pricey too.
