Pedestrian Perfection. In his quest to redefine men’s footwear, Italian accessories designer Cesare Paciotti created perhaps this season’s most intriguing hybrid—a cap-toe dress shoe with a high-top sneaker’s heel and sole. Numerous other designers have followed in his footsteps, embracing the concept of mixing the elegant aesthetics of a dress shoe with the comfort of athletic footwear.
