Originally favoured by Chinese martial artists, Feiyue’s line of no-nonsense, athletic sneakers gained a cult following after Orlando Bloom and Johnny Depp came out as fans of the brand. 

For its Summer 2012 collection, however, the French-owned shoe label has gone for a softer, more laid-back feel with its new vintage-style shoes for women.

Inspired by a carefree Californian summer, Feiyue’s latest collection features more than 100 styles, including 80 unisex models and the shoes that made its name, the high-cut Delta Mid sneakers ($105). 

However, two new designs for women are standouts from the sporty herd of Feiyue sneakers: the delicate Debbie and Saddie shoes, which blend right into any American road-trip landscape.

The Debbie ($69) is a super-lightweight derby shoe with leather details and a mesh base to keep cool in the heat, while the Saddie ($135) is a preppy, 50s-style lace-up that looks effortlessly vintage. Both styles are available in a range of colours and are a great way to lend a breezy retro finish to any summer outfit.

Feiyue shoes are available at Leftfoot stores at #01-19/20, The Cathay and #02-07A Orchard Cineleisure. Prices start at $69. You can also shop online at asiashop.feiyue-shoes.com
