Gucci Sneakers

Guccio Gucci opened his first shop in Florence in 1921, selling luggage. He soon expanded his small business, with the help of his sons, around Italy and, in 1953 they opened their first shop in the United States.

Gucci products soon became a symbol of elegance and class worn by Audrey Hepburn, Jacqueline Kennedy, Maria Callas, and the Duchess of Windsor.

The 1950s and 60s brought Gucci classics such as the bag with the bamboo handle and the moccasin with the metal bit. The 1970s saw rapid expansion around the world, including shops in Tokyo and Hong Kong.

More recently, Tom Ford and Domenico De Sole have transformed the company into a global player in international fashion, offering their clients perfume, watches, jewelry, not to mention their famous luggage and clothing.

Gucci sneakers became very popular in the last decade. Unlike footwear made by Nike or Adidas, Gucci sneakers have a distinct and typical Italian style and are addressed to a more select group of customers.

They are carefully designed by the company’s talented designers and offer an extraordinary choice for those who prefer to wear unique and different footwear than most people.

Also unlike more popular brands, Gucci’s sneakers are more expensive, but that’s the price of uniqueness.

You should also take a look at Prada sneakers, made by another important Italian fashion designer.

You can find here some other Italian sneaker brands.
