FASHION house Gucci has served up its own version of the much-loved Dunlop Green Flash trainers — for £435.
The cheap Dunlops were a PE kit staple for a generation of school kids in the 70s and 80s and are still available for around £30.
They were even worn by British tennis champ Fred Perry in the 1930s.
But now the Italian firm has created its own take on the shoe, costing £400 more.
Gucci tells potential customers on its website: “The low-top sneaker is presented in white mini GG jacquard canvas.”
It adds: “The style combines different elements from the House's heritage such as the Gucci Tennis 1977 label, a textured GG motif at the sole and the classic Web.”
The fashion house has also revived another retro classic, flared jeans, costing £600. Gucci hails the denim as a “cult fabric”.
Fans are told the jeans are “specially stonewashed for a vintage look".
Gucci says: “The Spring Summer 2020 collection makes a strong statement in denim, reworking the cult fabric with different shapes and treatments.”
