A pair of python skin sneakers is one of those not very politically-correct things that I find very sartorially attractive. Of course, I don’t care if it’s real or embossed or leather-made-to-look-like-snake skin; as long as it looks the part. This pair from YSL caught my eye the other day.
With its clever mix of suede, patent leather and python skin, this is one detailed-driven pair of kicks. Of course, in lesser hands, it has the ability to look too busy but in the skillful hands of the people at YSL, this has all the trappings of a luxurious pair that will serve you well for years to come. Wear this with everything – jeans, chinos and in the evening with tailored pieces for a mix of contemporary chicness.
