The ultimate guide to sneakers

Sneakers took the world by storm from when they first hit the scene back in the good old days. There is now a sneaker out there that fits everyone styles and needs. Sneakers have evolved from the gym and our weekend wardrobes, they are now worn everyday to and from work.

With their classy yet street style profile and versatility to pair with smart and casual outfits, tennis shoes especially have become a staple for the modern sneaker offering.

The Venice is an evolution of the Propulsion Mid and has fast become one of the best-selling silhouettes. A low-collared court shoe features luxe panelling. A minimal black outsole, dual D-rings and eyelets, and a contrasting tab deliver on Android’s commitment to innovation and detail. 

A trip down memory lane for Sweeney's Cobbler-in-Chief, who’s made a court appearance or two in his time – squash court appearance we hasten to add. Sweeney's Harrow has a retro 1970s shape on a traditional natural rubber cupsole. Sweeney has chosen suede and soft tumbled leather for the upper with a striking red accent, and included a full leather lining and leather cushioned insock. Altogether a little more refined and comfortable than its 1970’s counterpart.

It’s the attention to detail that Sweeney's artisan Italian factory does so well. Lazer etching on calf leather and intricate stitch detailing around the leather wrapped cupsole, are meticulously finished by hand. Layer upon layer of dye create a true depth of colour and beautiful antique finish – all fully leather lined, of course. The Least casual of casuals.
