Nothing says vintage boho style for men like skilfully placed paisley and these luxury plimsolls from ‘Saint Laurent’ are the perfect example of how to subtly mix up your errday sneaker game.  The paisley pattern makes these puppies pop while still being a much less understated plimsoll you can throw on with shorts, jeans or any casual clothes.  The off-white gummy rubber sole give it that awesome vintage fashion look like you rolled straight outta Dogtown and all for just €345 over at ‘Mr. Porter‘.

If like me there’s no way you’re gonna drop €345 quid on a luxurious overpriced albeit hella cool low top then this alternative from ‘Vans’ can satisfy your needs.  Visually offering pretty much the same as the Saint Laurent paisley plimsoll for a fraction of the cost.  With a newer clean white print and rubber finish this trainer from Vans comes in at a sale price of €36 to buy, that’s over €300 quid less.

VERDICT

If you’ve got the cash, the Saint Laurent trainer is slightly more aesthetically appealing with its vintage looking mid-sole and washed out demeanour but at over €300 of a price difference the Vans plimsoll has to be the winner and if you really want that worn out look just make sure you wear em’ errday.
