Gucci Flashtrek: Glammed up ugly trainers

When Gucci Flashtrek debuted in the market, Gucci made it to the headlines. The brand created a lavish makeover to rugged footwear with this pair's flashy jewels and bold silhouette. This sneaker harnesses visual cues from classic hiking boots with details borrowed from Sega, a Japanese video game maker. 

Crafted in Italy to maintain the premium quality, this kick is made with dynamic mixed materials on its upper with detachable flashy bejeweled straps. It is accentuated with a gum rubber sole and quick lacing system, for a cozy and casual look.

Can we hike with this?

While this sneaker is molded from hiking footwear, it is not an actual outdoor hiking shoe. Gucci designed this kick with a thick sole, similar to another skyscraping luxurious model - the Balenciaga Triple S. The sturdy, rugged sole is meant to keep its wearers ready for the city streets, dancefloors, and casual events in eye-catching style.
