Slip-on sneakers are one of the big fashion stories for SS15. With fine leathers and eye-catching designs, our favourite names in footwear are re-inventing a true classic, using the finest materials and hand-crafting each pair.
We love this trend. What's not to like about the slip-on sneaker? Super-versatile, beautifully simple in cut and so easy to wear, this fresh take on the slip-on is set to count among our wardrobe favourites this summer.
Here's three of our slip-on sneaker picks for SS15:
Trust New Yorkers Common Projects to take a look out of the window, and realise that slip-on sneakers were due for reinvention. Here the statement is in the understatement. With uppers hand-crafted in Italy from subtly perforated grey nappa leather, and calfskin leather to the inside, the sumptuousness feels like a personal secret. The streets take to the catwalk.
Those dedicated Italian specialists at Diemme have a bold take on the classic 1980s chequered slip-on sneaker for SS15. In woven leather from a small Italian tannery, with cowhide inners, each pair is handmade by Diemme craftsmen. Ready to walk you into Venice's smartest party and yet entirely at home on the beach for cocktails, these sneakers may be Diemme's smartest move yet. And, yes, we are a bit in love with them.
Cult footwear specialists Buttero have a backdrop in boot-making and here their skills are finely honed to produce luxurious simplicity. Woven blue uppers speak of a summer spent on deck, while a suede lining provides a luxurious inner. Naturally these supple sneakers are of the highest quality - and they're exclusive to Opumo.
All of these slip-on sneakers are now available here at Opumo.
