Gucci has a knack for making the unsightly a masterpiece: big tweed cardigans, jam jar glasses—basically anything you'd find in the bottom of your nan's cupboard. And now, it seems creative director Alessandro Michele has placed beauty into another beast: chunky trainers.

Both kicks boast a smooth leather upper, a gum-hued outsole and a thick rubber midsole, adding comfort and bulk to an already sizeable silhouette.
