While tonal offerings were front and center during the winter, for the spring 2022 season we’re looking at printed sneakers of all kinds – from flowers to tie-dye to monograms. Fancy prints adorn haute couture shoes at Prada, while Louis Vuitton is bringing back its early logo denim. Also in the mood for bold designs, Nike covers their sneakers with alluring flowers.
