Fifties looks storm Milan runways evoking an air of nostalgia for a dapper era passed. Tennis shoes offer a classic simplicity, showing solid canvas uppers and vulcanized gum rubber soles that cup the foot and wrap up around the toe showing linear ridges. One piece woven leather gives ventilation to uppers, creating sophisticated summer styles. Round toe Oxfords display textural ‘50s motifs while brogues take on a retro monochrome coloration.
