Harrods is a luxury brand department store in the Royal Borough of Kensington, Chelsea, and London. It was founded by Charles Henry Harrod in 1834. With the wonders of the web, at harrods.com, you can now browse through accessories for men, women, and children, as well as beauty products, housewares, and gifts, even if you are nowhere near the U.K.
Today, we will be taking a look at the men’s trainer high tops at Harrods. The high to sneaker has grown from being an athletic shoe to being a casual fashion statement. High top sneakers have even made their way to the red carpet, as a diversion from the typical oxford or lace-up.
At Harrods, you can find luxury shoe designers such as Alexander McQueen, Giuseppe Zanotti, Saint Laurent, and Lanvin. Leaning toward the high end of the price range is the Python High Top Trainers by Lanvin. The reptilian style shoe has a calf skin lining, white rubber sole, and a matte 100% python skin upper that is made in Italy and priced at 1,050.00 Euros.
Next, is the Paisley High Top Trainers by Giuseppe Zanotti that are done in a red paisley printed leather that has a side zipper and is trimmed in black leather. These are a little more affordable at 435.00 Euros and if the red and black combo is a little loud for you, they also come in a tone-on-tone black style.
In keeping with the trend of texture that has translated into shoes, as well as into clothing this year, you will find the Dexter High Top Trainer from Kurt Geiger in London. The black leather upper has been molded to form all over peaks that give these shoes an edgy, “rock and roll” type look. At 140.00 Euros, you would be right on trend, but still have the comfort of its luxury style.
Last, but not least, is a high top brand that is very well known in the US: Vans. With the price tag of 52.95 Euros, however, you are trading in the leather upper for canvas, but in the red and the black this high top shoe is still a really versatile shoe.
There is a fine line between looking casual and looking messy, and unfortunately it is finding that line which has some men struggling for inspiration. Fashion doesn’t have to be complicated; it shouldn’t be chore and if anything should be enjoyed by the modern gentleman. It is easy to find things which look good; it’s all about knowing what your style is and what suits you.
Due to this, I have chosen a few simple staple items of clothing which should be in every man’s wardrobe. These can be teamed with anything and can suitable for any casual adventure.
