The best of Prada footwear


It may not seem like it sometimes, but women aren’t the only ones who complain about foot pain from unforgiving shoes. The only option is keeping a pair of trainers on hand to quickly change into when no one’s looking. And then back out them of when duty calls. Or at least, it was until now

Prada are leading a slew of shoemakers, including the likes of Mr. Hare and Salvatore Ferragamo, in reinventing the classic men’s shoe for comfort as well as style.

The range is called Modernist. On first glance it appears that nothing’s changed. There are loafers, lace-ups and boots, as you’d expect, that come in a mixture of polished leather and textured saffiano. But the difference is in the sole, which is lightweight and made from rubber to ensure cushioning if you’re on your feet all day.

Prices range from £295 for a saffiano leather loafer to £350 for a five-lace holed shoe, with the Chelsea boot coming in at £330. Above, Shortlist Style Director Adrian Clark picks five of the best from the collection. All styles are available now exclusively from Prada stores.

1. Saffiano leather moccasin

2. Suede driving shoe

3. Penny loafer

4. Oxford lace-up

5. Chelsea boot
