Trail shoes not only survive. Season after season they acquire more and more character, enriching themselves with new models, more and more suitable for the urban lifestyle.

And Prada, which focused on classic red leather and lace-up boots as they were used for climbing in the late 1800s/early 1900s. From there on it was a crescendo: Raf Simons, the Gucci x North Face collab, Stella McCartney, Givenchy, Miu Miu, Loewe. In short, the classic hiking boots became a fashion statement, reaching the pinnacle of the trend.

Of course, most of the people who wear them today have never trekked the lashing terrains of the mountains, or simila. But should they get the urge for such an experience, they would be up for it; one thing is for sure: The old saying “you can tell a lot about a man by looking at his shoes” certainly rings less true today.

A Sneakers enthusiast plus casually collect shoes for basketball, skateboarding, tennis, and-now-even hiking, without playing any of these sports.

The world of Sneaker Culture seemed saturated with all kinds of silhouettes, and instead – a sport as old as the world, though little practiced until recently, has introduced a brand-new style, far removed from the “graceful” and streamlined models to which basketball, or the essential and elegant ones of tennis, have accustomed us.

Tailer-running sneakers are almost “ungainly” and awkward, ascribable to “gorpcore” fashion, or the craze for everyday outdoor performance wear.

Celebrities like Bella Hadid and Dua Lipa have definitely deprovincialized outdoor style, sporting the perfroming sneakers with a wide variety of outfits. Inspiration for your next urban look is guaranteed.

This trend will persists over time, mainly because fashion has finally met comfort-which is quite unheard of-secondly, these types of shoes have the happy feature of an affordable price.
