Erm, I’m not going to lie: I never put Shahid Kapoor down as someone to be one in-the-know when it comes to designer labels and such, but his sneaker choices in the past fortnight has made me go back on my words. Boy, did he impress or what?!
First up were the super-fly Rick Owens ‘Geobasket’ hi-tops, which he had on for his meeting with the architect for his new flat a couple of weeks ago. If my memory serves me right, this is the first time that I’ve seen someone from Bollywood don Rick Owens, a label for those in-the-know and not at all mainstream. (Okay, we’ve seen Mozez Singh wear these trainers for the Nobel Faith launch some time ago, but he’s not from Bollywood, is he?)
Then, over the weekend, for the NDTV-Fortis Cancerthon and the success bash for Queen, he wore the navy Givenchy ‘Tyson’ hi-tops, which is an icon amongst sneakerheads. May I add that I loved both of Shahid’s laidback getups over the weekend — he looked just so effortlessly cool.
