Starting 1962 every kid in Leningrad knew: Dinamo trainers were ever-comfortable for playing games and doing sports. He might also have wanted to own another pair to wear around. Since then a lot has changed and nowadays you can buy any brand you like but Dinamo remain the Most Nostalgic Shoes in Saint-Petersburg. I have them. And once I show up somewhere wearing these white trainers with classic blue and red stripes, people recognize them immediately.
Despite all the changes in the world since 1960-ies Saint-Petersburg based Dinamo factory managed to keep their business up and running till the present days with trainers looking classy and feeling comfy once you put them on. Of course, designers have brought several other models to the market, for example black and dark blue colours, different number of stripes – between fashion and classics they choose the last. I deeply respect Dinamo for this almost unique “in-country shoes producer” status. They also have a lot of regulars, very loyal to the brand.
Trainers are sold in the small shop located in the residential area next to the factory. You need to take a subway plus 10-minutes walk to get there. Also please mind the map attached to the article – the shop is on the right-hand side of the building.
Price is around 1500 rubles (€ 35 – € 40) and has old-fashioned correlation with the size: 34-46 (European measures).
Notes: 1) genuine leather is used to make them; 2) cards aren’t accepted.
