Simplistic Luxury Leather Sneakers

Valentino Launches a New One Stud Calfskin Leather Sneaker

— May 12, 2021 — Luxury
Luxury fashion house Valentino unveils its newest sneaker model in the form of the One Stud. The shoe is made from premium calfskin materials and is marked by details from the signature Garavani Roman Stud series. This silhouette spotlights a single stud and it can be found on the lateral side of the minimal sneaker.

The finish is a semi-matte for an elevated aesthetic. The shoe arrives in the options of either low-top or mid-top cuts, complete with branding detail on the heel and tongue. It is applied through a screen-printed application as it all sits on top of a rubber sole unit foundation. It also has a rubber tread at the outsole for a sturdy base.
