Gucci Screener Leather History
Since the 20s, Gucci has been providing high-quality leather bags and travel luggage for the horsemen and later on moved into providing ties and handbags with bamboo handles. The company then started to expand its business in the 50s and offered their products to several parts of the world, which allowed several Hollywood stars and celebrities to recognize Gucci in the world of fashion.
From bags, the company started offering sneakers in the 80s and named it as Tennis 84. This classic model featured the red and green iconic hues of Gucci stitched on the premium, white leather upper. It was quickly picked up by the hip hop genre and some known drug mafias for its stylish and luxurious repute.
Gucci decided to re-introduce the Tennis 84 in 2014 to celebrate its 30th year in the fashion world. Since then, several luxurious brands followed suit and the popularity of extravagant kicks in the fashion domain has been nonstop.
In 2019, Gucci unveiled its Cruise collection that features various shapes and materials to exhibit influences from different decades. Included in this collection is the Gucci Screener Leather sneaker, named after a defensive sport move, that flashes intentionally distressed upper added with few outmoded details to give an authentic old school look.
