Gucci gets down and dirty with its '80s-inspired shoe collection
Nope, this is not a pair of sneakers that we found at the back of the cupboard amid discarded bootcut jeans and cans of hairspray. This is from the new vintage-inspired Ultrapace collection by the fashion world’s current reigning champion, Gucci.
With this being Gucci, the adapted ’80s design aesthetic has been built on using a mix-match of lightly distressed luxury materials including Tejus printed leather, suede, metallic leather, and Lavaredo fabric.
Adding its trademark artisanal touch, the Gucci sneakers also have a hand-coloured midsole, with logo detail including a vintage-style Gucci label attached to the tongue, and interlocking GG motifs.
