From tennis to “street” the women's sneakers speak Autry
From tennis trainers to never again without: the history of Autry’s sneakers is full of falls and rebirths, and today more than ever this footwear with the US flag on it represents an icon for the women’s footwear fashion. Born in Dallas in 1882, today the Autry brand speaks Italian. It was some “local” entrepreneurs who relaunched the brand in 2018 and in recent years, leading the turnover to grow more and more and making the sneakers with the American flag iconic. Since the summer of 2021, the brand has been in ownership of Made in Italy Fund, the private equity fund managed by Quadrivio and Pambianco. Mauro Grange is the CEO and former Gucci Patrizio Di Marco is the president. Originally, as stated above, the footwear was designed for sporting purposes; in particular the Autry model was suited for those who practised tennis and basket (the well-known Medalist model was even awarded in 1985 by tennis Magazine as the best tennis shoe of the year). Today, the Autry Medalis and Dallas models reign supreme in every occasion thanks to their Vintage style that has made these shoes unique.
Autry Medalist: the model most loved by women
Who says Medalist, says Autry: is she the sneaker queen of women’s fashion, belonging to the famous brand with the American flag. In two-tone leather, its iridescent white line goes well with any garment, from traditional women's jeans to military cargo trousers. To those who wants to dare and amaze, the combination Autry shoes plus an elegant dress, turns out to be a winning look. High or low, those who choose the Medalist will always be satisfied: impossible not to glance at the foot when you see the bichrome inlaid on the sides. And what to say then about the last chromatic combination by Autry which matches the colours white and turquoise with leather lining and cotton terry? The same model is available in violet as well. Comfortable and practical, the Medalist gives that touch of character also worn under a wide skirt or with classic shorts. Autry shoes are definitely the most loved women’s sneakers of recent years.
Dallas and Open Low: certainties and news at Autry
If the Medalist is the Autry most loved model by women, in second place we find the Dallas model. With their unique round toe and white flat laces, the Dallas are ideal worn either under jeans or under a skirt. A sporty but elegant solution for the “hot” season is definitely the open Low total white; the perforated leather toe and the beige suede inserts make it perfect for "great" occasions without having to give up the practicality and comfort of the sneaker.
