The Gourmet sneakers that we presented to you some time ago, finally make their way into stores. The inspiration for this season of footwear was the process of growing up. Taking nostalgic pieces of footwear from their American-Italian upbringing and fusing thoughts,memories, rubber and canvas to make a “grown-up” basketball shoe. They used popular basketball silhouettes of the late 80′s and early 90′s with the clean lines and fit of classic American autoclave tennis shoes. The marriage makes for a “wearable” basketball shoe that can grace a runway or pizzeria.
Not many times we comes across a sneaker that is as clean as this first release by Gourmet. Hopefully we see a lot more from them in the near future. The sneakers will be released worldwide next week in a black and navy blue colorway.
