After a great start, sales are having their second markdown. If winter models are the most looked after, the classics are also finding buyers thanks to markdowns going to -60%. Here are a few brands that people just have to get.
One day the two Bensimon brothers found that they had an enormous stock of white tennis trainers in their store. So they happily decided to tint them in various colours. These shoes were sold in the 1980’s and had a great success. They have rainbow colours and are extremely colourful and also can be personalized. The Bensimon trainer has become a real “must-have”. Today, the collection also offers original and brightly coloured clothing, bags and accessories. We like their authentic spirit.
Desigual was created in 1984 in Spain. Even 20 years later, Tomas Meyer has imagined a colourful world. The creator’s vision was a colourful , creative and original style. We like philosophy of this Spanish brand that is based on being positive, innovation and being different.
Feiyue was created in 2006. This French brand develops and explores new territories that are in harmony with its core values. It hasn’t lost its original image of the charming canvas shoe from Shanghai. Quality and its image have evolved through the years, resulting on a shoe that is sturdy and stylish.
Amongst the brands of trainers on sale, you’ll find Le Coq Sportif. This brand was created in France in 1920 thanks to Emile Camuset. More than half a century later, these shoes showed off vintage street style in the 70s and 80s. The rooster was chosen as a symbol for this shoe because it has become the official emblem of France. Cock-a-doodle-do!
Nike was created in 1972 and their famous “Waffle” shoe came out in 1973. This was the first trainer that had built-in shock absorbers. The famous Swoosh is supposed to represent the Greek goddess Nike’s wing. Victory is here for the sports fans who choose Nike!
