The Spanish fashion house — a favourite with Prem aces and Wags — admits: “Our sneakers are based on classic soccer boots, note the cleated soles and elasticated rubber tongues.”

“They’re made from durable faux leather that’s quilted, intricately topstitched and monogrammed for a distinctive finish.”

Critics cried foul about the design — in black, white and shocking pink — with one writing online: “They look like the market-stall boots I had at school when all my mates had Adidas Predators.”

Red card

By Clemmie Fieldsend, Fashion Editor

THESE so-called sneakers are less a style goal and more a fashion red card.

They look like a child’s first football boots.

Your wallet will take a kicking too at £540 for blokes and £495 for ladies.

I guess “peacock” owners will keep the mud off them.

Pass.
