My Shoe Collection #18
Prada Sport White Leather And Silver Mesh Sneakers
I am not really a fan of very sports-inclined, functional looking sneakers. Brands like Nike, Reebox just shouts ugly. So for me to own a pair of sneakers, it has to have certain aesthetic value, being fashionable and yet functional.
Prada sport offers a synthesis of both functionality and design. This pair of white sneakers is good example. I am sure you can wear these while going to the gym, do some yachting or outdoor activities. But you can walk these beauties on the streets of orchard road or even the boulevards of Champs-Élysées and still make heads turn.:-P
These Prada sport sneakers are very similar to the 'Prada/Car Shoe' version that spins of this design ever since. Except the soles are now big rubber blocks instead of small rubber studs. There are also variations of the material and details. But generally, the shape stays the same.
Got this pair of white Prada Sport sneakers during sale time, so it was even more of a 'kick' to add this to my shoe collection.
Retail price: Approx. SGD $540. Where to buy: Prada Boutique at Paragon
