What's this then?
P ZERO trainers from the Pirelli clothing brand
What's good about them?
Pirelli's P ZERO designers include former creative director of Prada Sport, Sandro Mandrino so there's certainly some decent style pedigree involved. There's also the fact that, as the P ZERO is also a tyre produced by Pirelli, the soles of the P ZERO shoes are based on the tread of their namesake. We're not sure this will make you walk any faster though.
