The technical running trend has been well underway for quite some time now with silhouettes like the Element React 87 from Nike and GEL-Burz 2 from ASICS leading the way.
Now it’s brands like Gucci that also want in on the movement, who recently unveiled their Flashtrek silhouette.
Mirroring design details from their chunky runner styles, this offering also combines a series of technical fabrics like the mesh paneling, D-ring eyelets, and lugged outsole pattern that resemble performance componetry on trail running shoes. Nostalgia is heavy with 3M detailing and tongue tagging that plays off the throwback SEGA font.
The Gucci Flashtrek is now available at select retailers like MR. PORTER.
Price: $980 USD
