Chic and Green, Italian Sneakers We Love!

Serafini, an Italian shoe brand since 1885, is known for athletic as well as more elegant styles. But in recent years they have become absolutely famous for their sneakers. We have designer and ex tennis coach Fabrizio Serafini, to thank.

The result however, is still 100% a sneaker, without imperfections or excesses, but with an exquisite hint of snobbery.

This summer, in honor of the 80s, Serafini has designed the top-model sneaker, with the names of a few super models of the decade embroidered on the back heel: Cindy, Naomi, Karen and Claudia to mention a few.

And, just in time for Earth Day, the collection features 99% vegetable-tanned leather. “Every season I’ll be adding something new until the result is totally green,” he says.
