The Parisian label A.P.C. is well-known for its unassuming, super-slick clothing and an equally impressive jewellery offering. After three years in the making the French label debut its running-style trainers including a ‘Techno’ and ‘Running’ sneaker.
Having previously collaborated on a number of classic Nike silhouettes and boasting a current luxury A.P.C. footwear offering including Derby shoes, Chelsea boots and tennis-style trainers the French label sure have what it takes to make quality footwear.
It’d be lazy to call the brand out, claiming it is jumping on the back of the ‘chunky sneaker’ craze. A trend that has seen high-end fashion brands jump in on the sneaker scene throughout 2017. A prime example is the Triple S Sneaker from Balenciaga that sells-out everywhere in minutes. These A.P.C. runners are quite the opposite; streamlined uppers, an exaggerated but free-flowing midsole and minimal branding.
Both styles feature quality fabrics including suede and canvas uppers, reflective panelling on the ‘Techno’ Sneaker and hiking-style laces across both styles. All three colours and both styles will go with everything and anything in your wardrobe regardless of the season. Clean, very European and in-line with the brand’s low-key, muted vibe.
