Chef’s been busy out and about of late – from the wilds of coastal Essex to the parks of Richmond. On my travels I got these subtle suede Diesel grey Midtown hightops from Sole on The Kings Road. They nod to the desert boot renaissance, but, with soft suede and a trim white trainer sole, they’re toned down for the city. Fittingly, the treads on the sole form a map of Manhattan with the Diesel logo as Central Park. Spare and simple for Spring. Chef’s Kiss!
