the TUXEDO SNEAKER
Sport-luxe, après sport, athleisure—by any name, sporty chic is the mood of the moment. Nothing epitomizes this trend quite like the rise of the slip-on sneaker.
Originally a standby for the skateboarding set of the ‘70s and ‘80s, this unassuming shoe has found its high-fashion footing.
Meet Val. A luxe, louche slip-on reimagined in a romantic rendering thanks to glossy leather and a tuxedo-worthy bow. Offered in graphic combinations of black and white, this sumptuous pair is a modern, irreverent alternative to flats, from classic ballets to androgynous loafers and Oxfords. “I love this sneaker—it’s sporty and ladylike at once,” says Michael. This season, let the Val ground everything from full skirts to tailored trousers with a glamorous kick.
