If you fancy yourself a sneakerhead, we completely understand. The convenient footwear is great not only for sessions at the gym or your regular sweat-inducing exercises, they’re also ideal for off-duty days. Even in the office, if you’re among the lucky ones who are employed by businesses that do not have a rigid dress code. In the golden age of sneakers, which we are fortunate to witness, there are plenty of options that mix function with design. The most coveted designer brands have also dipped their toes into the game, making the sneakers scene more exciting.
Among these labels is the United Kingdom’s pride, Burberry. The quintessentially British brand boasts of a long legacy yet has remained relevant through the times, due in part to the classiness of its designs and the practicality of its items. With its sneakers, we see the brand moving forward but still injecting some of its timeless designs, striking a balance between the old and the new, if you will. To prove this, we’ve compiled some of their most striking sneakers. Fair warning, though: there’s going to be plenty of checks.
Burberry slip-on sneakers
If you are wanting of a pair that is purely for casual wear and you have a tendency to steer clear of sporty designs, then these slip-ons will not disappoint. The exterior is made of leather with intentional tiny perforations that function simultaneously as adornment and a way to make the shoes breathable and light. The heel with a Burberry branding will feel snug against the ankles. Put these on with your fitted denim jeans.
Burberry Rainbow Vintage Check Sneakers
We warned you about checks, didn’t we? Behold the signature plaid on these Burberry sneakers, but inserted with colors of the rainbow that manages to make the footwear look even more old-timey. They’re as fun to wear as they’re entertaining to look at, with non-restricting cotton and bouncy soles to make walking a breeze.
Burberry checked sneakers
For those who want to keep the colors dark, we have a great option in these dark, almost muddy green checked sneakers. These are also good for those who expect low-maintenance in their shoes, as the military green will make stains appear forgivable.
Burberry designer checked sneakers
Few people would have the guts to wear these very red sneakers, so why not be among the ballsy ones? The checked sneakers are packing with attitude, which can be attributed to the combination of colors, the rubber soles ready to take on anything, or even the checks. It’s probably a bit of everything.
Burberry Rainbow Vintage Check High-top Sneakers
Find yourself looking back at the rainbow sneakers featured earlier? Introducing another pair that fuses the rainbow stripes with the tartan design, this time in high-tops. We don’t mean to confuse you, just give you more options. Made in pure cotton, breaking in them wouldn’t be too hard a time.
Burberry House Check hi-top sneakers
These high tops appear to balance the sporty with the casual, as well as dial down the stripes without completely depriving you of colors. They’re moderately chunky, especially at the ankles, but that is to be desired if you want a snug fit. Plus, the sneakers are caves of comfort for the cotton panels that alternate with leather ones.
Burberry House Check sneakers
Burberry achieves equal footing between the tartan design and the relatively plain panels on these sneakers. The round toe will give your toes some wiggle room, and the padded ankle as well as the flat rubber sole will not be a torture to your feet even if they are in these shoes for the whole day.
Burberry Check Detail sneakers
It’s difficult not to be drawn into these sleek sneakers from Burberry. They’re bold and beautiful, even with the restraint in the show of colors. They’re made out of fancy black calf leather with hints of check in navy that blend effortlessly.
Burberry Doodle Print Cotton Gabardine sneakers
Before you is a considerably more youthful pair compared to the others, as well as modern and edgy, but still not lacking in the distinct Burberry appeal. The honey beige cotton is covered in all sorts of writing, seemingly scribbled with the brand name in different handwriting each time.
Burberry house check sneakers
A mention of Burberry is not complete without a show of its patented tartan design, and while we’ve had seen plenty so far, this is the first to display it so casually and without any other distraction. Even the structure is as classic as you can get with them. The soft rubber soles in black is a plus worth noting.
Burberry Perforated Check sneakers
We’re loving the simple but kicking design of these sneakers. It’s devoid of any other adornment except for the perforations that are supposed to serve as replacement for the checks and the striking heel branding. These are great if you want to keep your style minimal, plus, we really can’t complain about the airy feeling the holes bring.
Burberry Ritson sneakers
Want to show off some checks but worried sick of soiling the fabric? With these Ritson sneakers, consider the problem solved. The leather still requires maintenance, but that is not much of a problem when you’ve got sneakers as sleek and stylish as this one.
Burberry House Check hi-top sneakers
The list so far has catered more to casual tastes, but here is another that has more of the sporty vibe. The check shows up, of course, but it manages to blend in easily with the black leather that amps the appeal of these high tops.
Burberry checkered designer sneakers
Throw minimalism out the window and welcome these checkered sneakers unlike anything you’ve seen before. The pattern is shown all throughout, even in the oh-so-comfortable inside soles. Take each step with great ease and good grip, thanks to the flat rubber soles.
For sneakerheads who want to invest in a good pair of sneakers, or even just a casual sneaker fan with some money to spare, it is worth checking the British brand. Get your tootsies dressed with Burberry—doesn’t matter if they’re high tops or low tops—with signature checks that are unmistakable, so your feet’s cover will speak of quality, class and durability.
