California dreaming: Saint Laurent Surf sneakers

California dreaming: Saint Laurent Surf sneakers

Surf's up

Text: Andrea Sim

Every Slimane enthusiast worth their stovepipe jeans knows that sneakers and Saint Laurent are a match made in heaven. Their newest addition? Surf sneakers

Saint Laurent has made a mark for itself in the footwear department with their court and skate sneakers flying off the shelves. Want to cop a pair? Not that easy. And so, it's music to our ears that the brand has created yet another off-shoot to their collection of kicks: Surf Sneakers. 

Designed in the surf city Los Angeles for the menswear SS16 Surf Sound collection, trust Hedi Slimane to take cues from deadstock trainers to bring these to life. The sneakers will retail for both men and women and are available in two materials: Aged calfskin leather and cotton canvas. Pick from low or mid tops, and expect new prints and designs to transform the Surf sneakers each season. The spring 2016 selection? A dash of spunky leopard prints, primary colours and, our favourite, 'yeah baby' embroidered on the sides.

Because, that's exactly how we would feel with our feet laced up in a pair of sick Saint Laurent kicks.
