The ZDA Marathon Trainers may just be the perfect pair of kicks for spring. These vintage Czechoslovakian sneakers, recreated for modern wear according to ZDA, draws inspiration from kicks marathon runners wore from the 1950s all the way to the 1980s.
As for the construction, you’ll find a treaded rubber outsole paired with Italian suede and leather making for an organic, aesthetically swell combo. Stylish but understated, a highlight not wanting to show off too much. Pai them with light wash denim and a plain white T — it’ll work. Or of you’re going out for a quick jog, slap on some trainers and your good ol’ hooded pullovers. That works, too.
There are a number of color options on stock at Huckberry. Get a pair or two so you get some much-needed rotation for your streetwear game this season. They’re super comfortable thanks to additional foam midsoles, too. And they’re ultra stylish, and as straightforward as trainers can get. And like we mentioned, they blend well with casual get-ups. So you can slap them on for a quick coffee run if your old Nikes are looking a bit dirty.
You might even get away with wearing something more formal with this pair. We won’t judge, don’t worry. They might work, anyway.
Granted, they’re a bit pricey at $230. And you might find something else more worthy of those hard-earned bucks, like perhaps conventional Adidas trainers. Or some New Balance kicks. But if you want to brag that your shoes are Czechoslovakian, buy this pair.
