A trainer that doesn’t dominate the streets already, that can not be so easily identified. It can be a challenge to find that, stores seem to be serving nothing but sameness nowadays.
But when scouring the internet on unlikely places across eBay, Vestiaire, Marktplaats and ‘bad taste’ shops – you might get lucky. I found these little gems on one of those nightly digital quests. The sturdy velcro runners are branded as ‘hiking shoes’, I imagine they’re targeted at senior tourists. In a different context though, they are everything but that. I am a big fan of that classic runner shape with that velcro that makes them look super clean and simplified.
