A fair bit of time spent in Paris-the last time Puma's Chuck Taylors emerged as a must fashion statement…leads us to believe that for this go round-those dazzling/bedazzled lace-up kicks- seen on luxury label runways…probably won't sell all that well at full retail prices.
Less costly versions of sneakers from multi-dimensional sports brands will fill that sartorial need-as they already offer up several street savvy versions.
IMO-women will pay for luxury prices for luxury labels that look-and are- the real deal-with beautiful sculptural heels, feminine often sexy silhouettes---and most likely-made in Italy of the finest materials and embellishments.
