You can catch me wearing white sneakers pretty much any day of the week. There’s something about them that just makes me feel like my outfit is more put together. Throughout the years, I’ve bought so many different styles and brands that I’ve worn down until they need replacing. Time and time again, I tried new ones, because I hadn’t found “the ones” I can’t live without. Then on a whim, I bought the M. Gemi Palestra Minimo Sneakers ($198), and they became my new favorites.
What makes them so special? For me, I love the design. I wanted something that was minimal and brand-less. I found that a lot of similar pairs either had a lot of branding on them or were upward of $400, which I would never spend. The cool design pretty much matches anything, including stretchy comfy pants, my favorite jeans, cute maxi dresses, and even work slacks. The sneakers are also handmade in Italy, making them a quality pair you know will last. Made from real leather, they’re a little stiff when you first get them, but mine broke in quickly. Plus, the rubber sole easily formed to my foot for all-day comfort.
I first tried them a few years ago and loved them so much, I just bought a second pair. If you’re also on the hunt for the perfect everyday choice, then these are worth a try. Keep reading to shop it and a few other cute silhouettes from the brand.
