Renowned and appreciated worldwide for their top-quality footwear, Marches brand Doucal’s, founded in 1973 by Mario Giannini, often loves to go against the tide when it comes to current fashions.

It is therefore perhaps not a coincidence, during the latest edition of theMICAM, that Gianni Giannini surprised us by not including sneakers in the collection presented at the event.

In reality, however, Doucal’s did have a surprise in store: the sneakers are being launched now, they have been named Runner Rio and are limited edition, made specifically for the up and coming Olympics, which will be kick-started on the 5th of August in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. 

The Runner Rio sneakers will be on sale exclusively in Doucal’s stores in Milan and Paris.
