Here’s a Fancy, Street-Style-Ready Sneaker

Photo: Valentino

Just in time for the onslaught of street-style images, Valentino is releasing a limited-edition sneaker that's made for any aspiring Golden Peacock. It's a play on its Rockrunner studded suede running kicks, updated via a toned-down palette of city-friendly neutrals. Despite their muted hues, the kicks are exactly the kind of photographer-friendly piece that could lure someone into snapping your photo. If you're just seeking a pair of very fancy shoes with absolutely no intention of garnering internet fame, they happen to be comfy and stylish enough to make even jeans and a T-shirt look special. The Rockrunners will be sold exclusively at Valentino's Fifth Avenue boutique starting today. As with all good things, quantities are in short supply so if you want them, act fast.

Valentino Rockrunner Sneakers, $895 at Valentino, 693 Fifth Avenue; 212-355-5811.
