Clae has always been known for understated yet stylish sneakers. For their Spring 2012 collection, they've asked French DJ Mathieu Schreyer to don their kicks for some fun in the sun.

Take the versatile silhouettes, inject versatile colors like red, navy, and gray, and combine that with Schreyer's casual style, and you've got us wishing we were hanging out in Venice rather than freezing our asses off in New York.
