The Definition of Minimal
Sneakers often get a bad rap, they’re either too athletic for a casual outfit or have so much incorporated into their design that they just won’t work.
Although, over the last few years, there has been a number of high-end brands scaling back on the complexity of sneaker design and taking a more minimal approach. Common Projects has always given the people what they need, slim and clean aesthetics with simple branding. And while the cost might be sky high, their models are much more wearable than well known brands such as Nike and adidas.
Not a knock on either of said top tier brands, but when you want to be able to wear a sneaker that pairs well with say dark washed denim or chino’s, the proverbial Air Force One is an option most would want to leave on the back-burner.
A solution for this Fall season is the Great’s Royale High Cuoio.
Finding the perfect sneaker during the transition of warm to cool weather often comes down to color, materials and price.
Royale High Cuoio
Greats considerably upgraded its classic Royale sneaker by raising the upper with a padded collar for a take on the timeless high-top sneaker. Just like its other counterparts, the Royale High marries old world Italian craftsmanship with new world style.
Finding the perfect sneaker during the transition of warm to cool weather often comes down to color, materials and price. Thus the Royale comes with a full-grain calfskin leather upper is lined with genuine calfskin and a plush footbed, then painstakingly sewn onto a substantial Margom sole. It’s finished off with waxed cotton laces that will develop a unique patina of their own.
