Available in a range of high-tech, high-craft designs
It’s a paradox that has plagued men’s fashion since the beginning – why can’t a formal shoe be comfortable, and why can’t a comfortable shoe be formal? Italian label Salvatore Ferragamo believes it’s finally addressed the issue with its newest men’s line, the Hybrid.
This is said to eclipse the established boundaries of masculine footwear, offering both elegance and comfort. As Paul Andrew, creative director at Salvatore Ferragamo, explains, “With Hybrid, there is no need to sacrifice the versatility and flexibility of a sneaker or the formality and heritage of bench-made traditional men’s shoes. Our inaugural Hybrid styles combine the best of both.”
There are two distinctive Hybrid styles to choose from. The first combines traditional-leaning upper templates with rope-edged ultra-flexible synthetic rubber soles. Colour combinations are either a scarlet sole and black upper, or a black sole and burgundy upper.
The other option features a distinctively silhouetted group of three styles, based on a sleek and sculptural base. Go for a minimally-decorated black derby, a strap-supported slip-on, or a strap-fastened derby with a Ferragamo logo.
Find the Hybrid range in Ferragamo stores, online and in authorised retailers, available now.
