Fashion Police for the Boys: Trussardi 1911 Plaid Sneakers

Forget 1911, Trussardi: these are more like 1992, in the form of a shoe. Remember all of those plaid shirts that came with the grunge movements? Well, imagine one of those shirts shredded, and turned into a shoe. Now imagine all of those shredded bits on the heel trailing through the puddles on a grim day in January. They’ll function a little like a duster, collection stray pieces of dirt and debris, and allowing you to drag them all over town, before bringing them home with you, attached to your shoes. And to think, you’ll have paid $559 for this!

Mind you, it’s possible that we’re being a little harsh on these sneakers. Perhaps you like them. Perhaps they make you feel all warm, and cosy, like the comfortable woolen blanket they appear to be made of.

What DO you think of them, readers? Yay or Nay?

    Nay! If they were much cheaper, I’d say they make good “cold day no one will see me in my house so I’m just curling up with a good book” slippers, but I’d never wear them outdoors!

    The shoes without the fringy bits are actually quite nice.
    That doesn’t mean I’d pay $559 for them.

    When I first look atthem I thought it was on emore case of clothes attached together: I saw and scarf attached to snickers! Maybe for those days when your ankles are cold!

    Agree with Hannah: these would be better without the fringe. I’ve yet to see a fringe on a shoe that I liked, either for men or women. They interfere with the elegance of the shape.

    The fabric is close to something I would buy unthinkingly because I am so many parts Scottish, but the Nirvana meets American Indian blanket vibe is a bit much. It makes me twitch and not in a good way.

    I’d quite like them if they were cheap and didn’t have the fringe. As it is, they’re rather silly looking and I’d be paying $559 for shoes that would ensure my cats kept pouncing at my feet all day long.
