Sneaker Peak

    In their goal to develop more comfortable dress footwear, men’s shoemakers began creating leather dress loafers with rubber soles typically found on sport shoes. For fall, Ermenegildo Zegna is taking that concept to the next comfort level by creating a hybrid shoe that functions like a slipper but wears like a sneaker. The Italian clothier’s new Globe Trotter is, in fact, two shoes in one: a soft travel slipper made of a proprietary lightweight fabric that easily slips like a sock inside a rubber-soled cycling sneaker and is held in place by two Velcro buckles. The black dual-purpose shoe, which retails for $395, comes with one of three colored slipper choices?jet black, urban orange, or sporty silver?and debuted in select Ermenegildo Zegna shops worldwide in June.  (888.880.3462, www.zegna.com)
