White sneakers are finally the RAGE in Europe.

Jump to last reply

Isn't it fun that white sneakers are finally the RAGE in Europe?

Having just returned from Venice and Milan, I was struck by the amount of white I saw near the ground. Perhaps that awful taxi strike forced more sneaker-wearing people onto the streets. Is it possible American tourists (or a steady lack of them) have had their impact on European fashion trends?

Blinding canary yellow sneakers were popular in Venice's fashion windows and on the feet of younger Italians during the Architecture Biennale opening. Italians tend to love their yellow/black combinations, but yellow is a bit too Donatella for me.

Nike opened a large store just before you step onto the Ponte della Costituzione. A lot of taxi drivers in Venice are wearing white Nike sneakers these days. You can spot the Nike logo a mile away.

Does this mean criticizing the American tourist who loves his/her white sneakers is over?
