Burnished leather uppers. Brown suede inset panels. A “well-loved” aesthetic. Another sneaker masterpiece by master of the American leather shoe, John Varvatos.
These shoes look like they’ve been fashionably lived in – so a little bump here and there will only character later on. They’re brown leather high tops, which is a fairly rare style for high top sneakers – and they rock the niche well. Like most John Varvatos sneakers, they almost recollect his famed leather boots.
Another interesting details – the lacing panels feature two levels – two layers of leather flaps, with shoestring holes of course, on each side of the tongue
You can alter the look of the sneaker by lacing in different ways. As shown here with the outer flaps mostly loose, you’ve got a more, free, worn look. Lace entirely through both layers for less boho, more polish.
