Valentino’s latest IT-sneaker comes in the form of a seemingly simple skate shoe silhouette, but dressed way up, with elements iconic of the Italian luxury label embellished all over. Studs on the side? Check. The wide panel detail on the side? Check. Camouflage print on the sole? Check.
Named Flycrew (not to be mistaken with the other street-style favourite, the Flyknit), these sneakers are the epitome of luxe footwear in the streetwear world, coming in a full suede body with a leather-panelled stripe and heel tabs. Turn it over and you’ll see their signature camouflage print all over its architectural sole that keeps from distracting from the clean, minimalist upper yet providing a stylish edge with every step.

Famed for its quality and craftsmanship, these Flycrew sneakers are made in Italy, the land known to have the best shoemakers in the world. And if you need more proof that these Flycrew shoes have got that must-buy factor, they are flying off the racks at Mr Porter, where most are down to a couple of size across the different colours they come in.
Given that they work out to about SGD920 to SGD950 each after conversion, these sneakers are not exactly cheap, but when you realise you paid way more for your fabric Yeezy 350, these Valentino sneakers seem fairly reasonable after all, right?
