Wanted: Bensimon Sneakers

We love these iconic French sneakers known for their chic simplicity. Launched in the ’70s, they were originally inspired by a military surplus style and the look hasn’t changed for decades, making it a true classic. Back then, Brigitte Bardot, Jane Birkin, and Princess Diana wore Bensimons. Nowadays, Kate Moss, Cameron Diaz, and Liv Tyler sport ’em. Plus: Parisians everywhere! You can’t walk a block in Paris without clocking at least a few pairs on gorgeous women and children alike.

We usually have a tough time choosing between the  très cute high tops and low tops. But this time of year, you can’t beat the elasticized slip-ons. Perfect with easy dresses, shorts, or cropped pants. Ideal for summer vacation. So then it’s just a question of color: will you go sunny and bright or soft and neutral? Either way, happy wearing and bonnes vacances!
