When we think of luxury, we think of indulging in the finer things in life. But more than that, what we experience when we enjoy something created with great care is comfort at its finest. One would think that there's nothing beyond experiencing luxury when you've already had it, but those who created luxury sneakers think otherwise. Designed with ingenuity, created with top-notch materials and handcrafted with care, these kicks are far from ordinary. Ahead, some of the pairs on our lust list.


Gucci Ace



USD599


It's the age of Gucci. We're sure your social feeds are just as filled as ours with photo after photo of Gucci gear, but we're not complaining. The Gucci Ace sneakers, which debuted in 2016, have already gained a cult-like following. But this reworked version featuring a water-snake trimming offers an irresistible fresh take on the already popular style. We're already pairing this with our no-fail T-shirt and jeans combo for casual weekends in our heads.


Balenciaga Race Runner



USD740


We love classics, but the streamlined, futuristic look of these sneakers from Balenciaga look mighty tempting. The varying textures of the materials used — leather, suede, neoprene and mesh — is a feast for the eyes. It also has a rubber sole that makes it comfortable to wear for errands. Worn with a fitted blouse and an A-line skirt, this style would definitely create a nice contrasting punch to an otherwise plain outfit.


Prada Logo Leather



USD565


A pair of tailored cigarette pants, a floral skirt or a pair of classic denim — a pair of Prada Logo Leather sneakers will complement it. This low-top pair in white with a pop of sweet pink and trimmed with black is our definition of a new classic. It's versatile but not boring — just how we like it.


Miu Miu Logo



USD561


The logomaniac in us has been awakened by this Miu Miu logo-embroidered shoe. The structural form of this pair is perfectly given a whimsical touch thanks to the glitters, making it a great pair for those whose style treads between athletic and feminine. Worn with a plain shirt and a leather skirt, we're ready to take on the night with this.




Giuseppe Zanotti Double Sole



USD601


We've been bitten by the chunk bug, and we can't get enough of this double-soled shoe from Guiseppe Zanotti. While its sole is chunky, it still looks sleek because of its streamlined design. The woven texture also gives an earthy touch to something that looks a bit futuristic, and the colour is definitely a winner in our book. With a graphic tee, denim cut-offs and a blazer, we're ready to turn around humdrum days with this.
