Paul Smith was just a small boutique owner in the U.K. when his now-wife encouraged him to pursue his dream of owning his own shop. Using the savings they had, he opened the shop, began taking evening classes in tailoring and design, and began creating apparel and footwear the way he wanted. Six years later, in 1976, he presented his first line in Paris under the Paul Smith label and – well – the rest is history. Always able to anticipate design trends and spark new fashion lines, Paul Smith continues to grow his footwear line-up with the Sonics sneaker. With a premium leather base, tonal leather laces, and blue and red accents, this lace-up with a classic, yet minimalist look is a solid buy for anyone looking forward to the warmth of summer.
