With limited parking and packed public transit, we expect to do a lot of walking these next couple of weeks. As such, we think our hard-working tootsies deserve tip-top trainers.
The special pair we've got our eye on is the Carl Haessner IIX. Handmade of gold and back Italian leather, the limited edition shoe is a collaboration between Vancouver boutique Lark and shoe brand Zeha-Berlin, and mimics the same Zeha sneakers worn by German and Soviet Olympic athletes back in the 1960s.
Its unisex style means you and your partner could sport matching pairs. Go team!
