It comes as no surprise that the legacy bootmaker Berluti found a way to give its first sneaker a high-end kick. Made from a single piece of leather, hand-sewn, and spruced up with sporty details, such as metal eyelets, scritto detailing on the tongue and sole, and brightly colored lining, they combine traditional craft with new technology: designer Alessandro Sartori was always sure to follow the house's guiding principle of breaking free from the pack. The sneaks are also performance-ready, equipped with shape-memory foam and an insole designed to absorb impact. You may not want to take them for a run, but count on a first-class long-lasting stroll.
