Paris-based Pierre Hardy is no stranger to luxury footwear. The brand started out making shoes for design powerhouses such as Hermes, Dior and Balenciaga. Since it’s own inception in 1999, the brand had branched out into mens footwear and accessories in 2002.
This season for the brand’s collection, we spotted a pair of well-crafted leather hi top sneakers in a structured architectural style that is clean and stands out amongst others in a cool, nonchalant way. These leather sneakers are made mainly from a matt leather upper accented by a reflective panel. The panel stretches across the heels and onto the sides, shielding the lace hoops from view. The soles are kept minimal in white and there is no additional adornment or logos other than the one on the bottom of the soles.
These sneakers are the shoe embodiment of the sneaker loving boy who is all grown up but searching for something more sophisticated and suave. They are now available for purchase at Eliminator.
