Paul Smith Aesop sneakers

Well-made sporting gear has long been touted for its ability to wick moisture, increase speed, prolong endurance, and, above all else, provide comfort while one stays active. This season that same functional athletic gear does double duty as street wear thanks to the influence of designers concerned as much about fashion as they are about function. To that end, bright colors, playful patterns, and an eye for detail now have their place on, and off, the playing field.
