Could anyone recommend a good quality (nice leather) sneaker brand in Europe that is high value but top quality in the league of Greats, Common Projects, Koio, etc.

I am aware of Crown and Velasca, which are both great, but they don’t offer black slipons as I’m currently looking for. Thanks ahead for whatever help you could provide.

Have you tried Hogan’s? This is a brand owned by Tod‘s and especially their model ‚Olympia‘ is pretty sleek

Take a look at Mr. P's sneakers (the brand of Mr. Porter). Otherwise, some of the new Adidas Originals Lacombe sneaker looks amazing. If you prefer it more classy, look at Brunello Cucinelli or John Lobb.

Carlos Santos (Portugese dress shoes) does have some nice sneakers too.

Thanks for the suggestions guys. I’d for pgotten about the CS sneakers, but think for sneakers I’ll stick with clean colors rather than patina, much as I like my other CS shoes. At the moment, I’m feeling like Crown are the nicest sneaks I’ve been finding in Europe. Let’s see how they look when my order arrives.

Which model did you end of buying? I’m looking for brown leather sneakers and currently leaning towards Koio. I like the more minimalist look.

UK brands (traditional ones at least) tend to have sneakers with a chunkier look. Like a sneaker version of a derby. I wasn’t aware of Crown before, but they look nice. Something in between the very paired back CP style and the more chunky Church or Grenaon sneakers.

Does anyone have experience with Santoni sneakers? I’ve only seen them online but again look like the look.

I got the wholecuts. Haven’t received them yet but I’m excited. The reviews I read are great and of course the leather is unsurpassed. I like the whole cut. It’s basically the cleanest design conceivable. Koi’s are great too of course. I’m excited about how the wholecuts are more unique, though.

The brown sneakers from suitsupply are gorgeous with that little contrast stiching.

Personally I prefer ECCO sneakers but I would recommend you to check cools and find what you like the most. Sometimes I find really good stuff for a decent price and I wish it happens more often.

Most of the Northampton brands do sneakers, there was the Northampton shoe company, they seemed to have disappeared. There is a brand from Sheffield too - Goral.

Eytys, Swedish brand
Diemme, Italian brand, manufacturer for Margiela, Chanel, Bottega Veneta sneakers.
