Sausage and mash, Xavi and Iniesta, Run DMC and Aerosmith… there have been some great double acts in our time. But sticking two things you love together isn’t always a recipe for success. Get it wrong and it’s possible to create a Frankenstein’s monster that’s far less than the sum of its parts (see De Niro and Pacino in Michael Mann’s chuggernaut Heat).

Thankfully the new adidas Vespa LX Lo is a hit, successfully combining a little of that iconic 60s Italian style with German trainer engineering. The result is a really good-looking pair of suede and mesh kicks that feature a tasteful adidas/Vespa logo on the tongue, heel and eyelet.

They’re available in silver and white but we particularly like the electric blue pair featuring waspish white and neon yellow stripes which is fitting because vespa is Italian for wasp. The latter have been glued to our feet since they arrived at Sabotage Towers and judging by the number of appreciative looks from sneakerheads in the street we’re not alone in rating them.

The adidas Vespa range are available exclusive to Foot Locker.
