Oliver Sweeney SS16 Luxury Trainers
Casual footwear can be a tricky business if you’re not the sort of Joe who couldn’t think of anything worse than spending your Friday night at the pub donning a pair of Airs or Chucks. But there are alternatives for the more discerning Joe who wants to play things casual and one of them is these luxury trainers by Oliver Sweeney.
Footwear in general this year seems to be following a more minimalistic trend with lets extravagant designs coming from some of the big kick hitters. Iconic shoemaker Oliver Sweeney delivers his SS16 collection in a similar vein with a 10-piece collection of luxury trainers.
The luxury trainer collection this season is inspired by British sport in all its forms – from the highest highs of our world-beating athletes to the very English ritual of Wimbledon. As such, the collection of trainers sees athletic silhouettes in patriotic colourways.
This is Oliver Sweeney’s actually first delve into the more casual footwear market but thankfully the label haven’t compromised on their usual high quality materials during the process. The trainers are made with the finest Italian leather in the same factory and by the same hands who create the more formal line.
Each new style in the collection is being individually released and the first to drop is the Osimo low-top. Using hand-finished techniques, the premium leather low-profile Osimo combines the best of Italian craftsmanship with a versatile Margom rubber sole.
The rest of the Oliver Sweeney SS16 trainer collection will feature similarly sleek, minimal silhouettes. You can also expect features such as calf leather linings, padded collars and hand-stitched detailing. The whole range will be released on the Oliver Sweeney Website and in stores over the next month or so.
