Palm Angels’ new University Sneaker is, at its base, a good-looking, understated retro sneaker that’s good for all seasons. But, dig a little deeper and you'll see that Palm Angels’ new University Sneakers are a distillation of Palm Angels values and an ode to belonging, reflecting Francesco Ragazzi’s philosophy.

Universities represent academic freedom, providing the education needed to open up the world for their students. They were founded with the purpose of ensuring access to knowledge for all and the Latin root 'universitas' translates as a whole or a group of people engaged in the same thing.

So, while the University Sneakers are indeed anchored in the favored styles of specific communities, they’re also a celebration of the original core values of these educational institutions: Freedom, exploration, and a deep sense of belonging.

The retro design combines skate style with sportier sneaker design for a sleek, versatile take on luxury sneakers. Soft calf leather combines with suede trims and a lightweight rubber sole unit for a sneaker that’s comfortable, high-end, and visually timeless.

Landing in five distinctive colorways, each defined by a different hue to the heel tab, tongue label, and outsole, the Palm Angels University Sneakers are easy to style and set to turn heads.

All in all, the design illustrates Ragazzi’s continued ability to translate his brand’s philosophical values into products that reference disparate cultures and times. As comfortable coupled with tailored pants as they are with a pair of signature Palm Angels track pants, the University Sneakers are just the latest in a long line of pitch-perfect kicks from the Italian label.
