Would you wear white trainers in Summer? Are you afraid to wear white trainers due to the nature of them getting very dirty? Why would you opt for wearing white trainers right now? I noticed after a day or so that every professional gondolier are wearing white trainers. Nike seems to be the trend. It makes perfect sense as it teams well with the traditional professional gondolier outfit.
You need to be fit and have the trainer style and grip to manoeuver through the canals, trust me it is harder than you think. Read about how long it takes to become a Gondolier to sail a Gondola.
There is a traditional style happening here with the striped nautic polo shirt with tight chinos. The older guys seemed to choose a more traditional stylish white shirt, which I loved. But when it comes to trainers it’s either white or black.
The only way to explore Venice is by walking. It is very taxing on the body when walking Venice. Even when you climb upstairs at Piazza San Marco one needs to buy high-end trainers.
I walked Venice in my Puma trainers for three months. At dresshub they have a variety of stylish trainers to choose by. When walking Venice the street style is amazing to see and be inspired by. Trainers are huge in Italy due to the historical cities cobble paths.
High-end fashionable trainers are a must in Venice and everywhere in Italy.
Every gondolier wears a straw hat as it gets so hot on the water. I was only sitting in a gondola for 30min which is the standard time and I got so hot. But the overall experience was beautiful.
At the moment due to Covdi 19, the price has dropped by 50% which is now 40euro on average.
You have not experienced Venice if you have not been on a gondola.
Everyone knows that the gondola is Venice’s most typical craft, made from 8 different types of wood, gondolas are constructed in boatyards called squeri by Gondola builders since the 11th century. James Bond, Casino Royale was one of the locations filmed here in this spot.
Every gondola is 11 meters long, 1.40m wide and 0.65 meters high. The oar is made of beech and the forcola, the stylized oarlock, is made of walnut. Eight kinds of different wood are used to build a gondola, oak, elm, lime, larch, fir, cherry, walnut, and mahogany.
The only parts in metal are the ferror in the front and the risso at the back. They look so elegant when coming out of one of the 400 bridges here in Venice. Gondola and fashion is very much part of the DNA of Venice. It’s very romantic to watch and experience.
Adidas always look fabulous with chinos and everything navy.
It’s not easy to become a professional gondolier. Requirements include attending a special school, passing a public competition set by the Ente Gondola, and being apprenticed to a professional gondolier for 6 to 12 mths.
The final step includes passing a rigorous practical exam.
The first female gondolier or gondoliera was licensed in 2010.
I have only seen one female gondoliera here in Venice and I have been walking Venice.
Share your white trainer style and also how on earth do you keep them clean? If white is too stressing then make sure your stylish trainers can walk the street of Venice let alone Rome.
