With a playful rubber sole that extends over the rounded toe, these sneakers are a plimsole-style made from cotton canvas with a cotton lining. Featuring a lace-up front, they are detailed with matte-coated eyelets and a cotton loop at the back to help slip them on.
A brand whose aesthetic has been so influential that it’s hard to remember what went before. But when COS launched in 2007 against a backdrop of fast, trend-led fashion, its focus on minimal pieces at accessible prices was a breakthrough moment. With a focus on style over trend, it heralded a new era for interesting, modern, considered design and changed our wardrobes for the better, forever.
