WORDS BY JOSEPH FURNESS
When did you last have fun? If you have to think about it, it’s been too long. Thankfully, fun is what the Gucci Flashtrek Sneaker is all about. It’s cartoon-like, it’s colourful, it comes with detachable jewels and it even has a nostalgic ‘80s reference. Big, bright and beautiful for the footloose and fancy-free.
Could you wear these on a first date?
Only if you’re planning to take your date on a bracing walk around a National Trust. (Sarcasm. But if this was a legitimate idea of yours, and you’re under 50, get a grip.)
Could you go hiking in these?
Funny you should ask. (Well, not really. These are premeditated, self-given questions) as the biggest trend for the AW18 season is hiking apparel. Whether or not the rubber sole on the new Gucci Flashtrek sneakers offers enough grip for some serious trekking is a question we cannot answer. How about you test it out and get back to us?
Would these help me win a race?
Although these Gucci Flashtrek sneakers adopt SEGA's retro typeface, they (unfortunately) won’t give you Sonic's super-speed abilities.

What does my grandmother think of these?
They look a bit like work shoes!! But I love them. I could wear them almost anywhere, but on account of my age, I would only dare to wear them with trousers. Xx
