From Alexander Wang’s street chic sneaker inspired collection come the Devon Espadrille sneakers. These closed toe shoes feature a pristine white calf leather upper and a contrasting black platform espadrille sole complete with the traditional rope fiber and hand-stitching details. The edgy shoes feature a silver zip on the front and come with a rubberized leather sole.
They won’t be to everyone’s taste, but we can definitely see these minimal sneakers becoming a street style staple. Rihanna and Cara Delevingne both have the street cred to pull these off, and while it’s unlikely that the Devon sneakers will ever see a red-carpet (which are generally ruled by Louboutins and Jimmy Choos) we’ve already spotted these rebellious espadrille/sneaker hybrids on a couple of stylish blogs.
Retailing at $375, these are almost cheap compared to other products from the same collection. If white is not your color this sneaker is also available in black leather and black suede with the latter priced at $350.
