Sometimes, you need to throw on a comfy pair of kicks to run down to the bodega and grab a bacon, egg and cheese before working in your apartment all day. Other times, you need to dress to the nines in 6-inch heels that make you feel taller than God herself. And then there are those other times — which happen more often than we are maybe even aware of —t hat we need the perfect combination of the two in order to show off our hype-y athleisure aesthetic with a wink and a nod to our high femme, boardroom killer instincts. Enter graphic designer and art director Davide Perella, who concocted just such a line of footwear below, bringing together iconic sneakers from Fila, Yeezy, Nike, Off-White and Balenciaga with a pointed toe and a stiletto heel. The shoes are "for people who don't care about comfortable sneakers," Perella said, adding simply, "In a world of dad sneakers, just be yourself."
