With the help of premier menswear brand PRESENT London, ellesse heritage continues to breathe new life into their classic sneaker style from the late 70’s, integrating the signature styles and personality of the two brands into this updated Poli. Made famous by 1986 New York City Marathon winner Gianni Poli, this runner stays true to its original athletic silhouette, but it picks up “the champagne of fabrics,” Harris Tweed, across its low-top upper. The Tweed design and the suede textile upper come in a classic caramel color with an icy white midsole to match the dual branded tag on the tongue. The look is finished with a flannel liner and a set of tonal cotton laces. This project is the second of five projects sponsored by ellesse with looks from Milan’s Special, Munich’s AMEN, and Shanghai’s Kin upcoming. These Poli’s, however, are available beginning today, October 18th, exclusively in-store at ellesse locations.
