Available now from American Rag CIE a sharp make up of Fred Perry’s table tennis shoe. The basics remain as always. Reinforced suede toe. Slim silhouette. What’s new? Silver contrast eyelets and patent leather body. The color scheme and material choice remove the shoe from its core intent (but, who really has “table tennis” shoes) and gives it a life outside. One detraction, it’s a sneaker caught between retro and high fashion, with not quite enough hybrid built in for success.
