Christmas present ideas for the sport enthusiast Dad

If your Dad is a casual-style, sports-oriented guy, he will appreciate the athleisure style that combines sporty comfort, impeccable Italian elegance, prestige materials and the latest research & development.

You could opt for sneakers, the sportiest leisure footwear of all, ideal for wearing with a pair of jeans or chinos, with a sweater or a blazer. Running-style sneakers are particularly trendy today.
