Nicholas GhesquiÃ¨re is known for his talent for reinventing fashion through his ground breaking work at Balenciaga, but has he gone too far with these shoes from the fall winter 2007/08 collection?
They look like someone has taken a perfectly good pair of sports shoes and tried to make them office friendly. Perhaps it’s a idea that could help to curb the people who wear runners out of the office to and from home – you know, the ones who pair skirt suits with white scrunch socks and runners. Though that is highly unlikely.
Who do you think would be bold enough to wear this fierce look? All bets are on for Victoria Beckham (she was seen sporting similar shoes recently) and maybe Chloe Sevigny.
On another note, can you believe that Nicholas is in his 10th year at the Gucci Group owned fashion house?
