Lavish Footwear Editorials

This Lookbook Pays Homage to a Pair of 80s-Inspired Gucci Sneakers

— July 29, 2019 — Fashion
The Ultrapace is a pair of 80s-inspired Gucci sneakers. The construction of the footwear is incredibly luxurious — a worthy addition to the impeccable and design-driven offerings of the luxe fashion house.

The upper of the Ultrapace shoes boast a mixed-material approach that utilizes "Tejus printed leather, leather, suede, metallic leather, and Lavaredo fabric." For a more artisanal touch, the Gucci sneakers also have a hand-colored midsole, while the classy status is communicated through a variation of logo embellishments.

The Ultrapace is expected to launch on August 7th. The footwear is going to retail for $700 USD. Meanwhile, tribute is paid to the stylish Gucci sneakers through an attention-captivating editorial that taps lavish Baroque sensibilities, retro aesthetics, and the ethos of the fashion-forward artist.
Trend Themes
1. Luxury Footwear - With the continuous demand for high-end and fashion-forward shoes, there's an opportunity for brands to innovate their luxurious offerings.
2. Mixed Material Construction - Incorporating different materials in shoe construction can create a diverse range of styles and textures for footwear enthusiasts.
3. Artisanal Touches - Introducing unique and handcrafted elements to footwear designs can elevate the overall aesthetic value and appeal to consumers looking for something special.
Industry Implications

2. Luxury Goods - With a growing demand for high-end luxury products, the footwear industry can continue to create and promote high-quality and artisanal footwear collections to cater to affluent consumers.
3. Artisanal Workshops - Handcrafted footwear designs require skilled artisans, and investing in artisanal workshops to create these unique products can create job opportunities and promote craftsmanship in the industry.
