My Shoe Collection #19

Paul Smith Baby Blue Canvas 'Brogue' Sneakers

Paul Smith always surprises me with quirky takes on classic designs. There is always a nice surprise element that gets you fascinated on the most normal of items. This pair of sneakers is a 'grunge' take on your classic leather brogues (a very English style). Fashioned in a cheery baby blue canvas (think small boy:-P) but with all the edges of the brogue detailing frayed. In a way, it's innocence meets grunge. White and blue eyelets lined the holes for the shoe laces which adds good contrast to the light blue canvas. The soles have contrasting blue stripes(in different shades of blue) which again makes the shoe 'cute' and quirky. Perfect for a sunny day out, casually shopping, lounging and meeting with friends. Effortless style with a bit of grunge:-P

Retail price: SGD $299. Where to buy: Paul Smith Boutique at Hilton Hotel
