The Art of Athleisure


A hybrid style of casual, comfortable clothes typically found at the gym (i.e. sneakers) adopted into your everyday rotations. 

Athleisure champions a laidback approach to dressing – but don’t be fooled, the key to achieving sports-luxe lies in the quality of the pieces in your ensemble. 

Summer sneakers crafted in the finest leathers and other materials will help you channel the sleek appeal of this low-effort, high impact style of dress. 

Your old faithful kicks just not cutting it where the style stakes are concerned? Discover the game-changing women’s summer sneakers and men’s summer sneakers for the bright days ahead.

For Her

The search is over for the best sneakers to wear with summer dresses. 

White summer sneakers will counterbalance even your most ‘out-there’ ensembles; we’re talking tiered dresses, silks, satins, frills, and florals. 

The Aliyah sneakers keep it simple with their low profile, lace-up silhouette elevated by a few key details.

Style notes include leather lace loops in the place of more traditional eyelets and subtle snakeskin panelling up the sides. 


Boldly Go...

Colourful sneakers present an opportunity to supplement your summer outfits with a quick dose of joy-inducing dopamine. Set the tone for the season with a pair of Padova in a paint box shade to suit your mood.

Padova is crafted from ultra-saturated grained leather in a striking low profile, signed off with a side zip, contrasting sole, and soft leather internals. Play up to their brilliance by pairing with a bold colour block outfit or make Padova a statement feature by opting for a neutral palette elsewhere.
