Berluti Playtime Sneakers!!!!!

Staying true to his love of all things beautiful and to the company’s ethos, Alessandro Sartori, the heir to a long tradition of Artistic Directors for the iconic men’s footwear brand Berluti, has designed the Berluti “Playtime” sneaker, the brand’s first sneaker. 
And here they are: 

Created from a single piece of patinated leather (a nod to the legendary Alessandro design), with hand stitching on the vamp and contrasting coloured laces, this shoe reinvents the art of city living.

What could be more natural than to hop onto an urban bike to indulge your love of sport or to be environmentally friendly, to opt for the smooth handling of a scooter, or simply to pound the pavements at a brisk pace? The lively, smart “Playtime” sneaker encourages this free-and-easy approach which breaks the rules, blends genres and styles, defies convention and offers a consciously contemporary set of values.

I managed to get my hands on a pair to get up close and personal with the exquisite pair of art work, take a look:

The shoe is created from a single piece of leather with a silicone-injected moulded upper that is hand-sewn with lock stitching. It features sporty finishes such as metal eyelets, brightly coloured leather linging and diamond-shaped perforations.  The sneakers include Berluti’s iconic Scritto detailing on both the tongue and rubber sole. The Playtime sneaker also boasts a shape-memory foam between the upper and lining to cushion the shoe.

Available now online at and in stores. 

If you are in Dubai like myself you can find them on a fabulous display in the level shoe district Dubai Mall.

Available in 3 different colours:
