M.Gemi Calcio Suede Running-Inspired Shoe
Footwear Aug 09 2018
You suffered through the dad-bod trend. Now, the ugly-beautiful 1980s-inspired dad sneaker seems to be trending. Not only is it trending, but it’s making a cross-generational jump (there’s a shoe joke in there somewhere), so that suddenly “cool dad” no longer needs quotes. By many fashion standards you are actually a cool dad if you rock the M.Gemi Calcio Suede Running-Inspired Shoe.
But what’s in a name? The Calcio is the Italian attempt to make a lightweight suede shoe into something that can (in theory) be worn both at the track and to the office for casual Fridays. The shoe itself features an incredibly grippy St. Moritz sole, contrasting leather for the heel tab, a spoiler, and of course three different shades of perforated suede. If you’re looking for a shoe that can go the distance, walk 500 miles, or whatever late 80s / early 90s trend you want to embrace, then look no further than the Calcio. It’s stylish, but still a sneaker defines it best.
