Alessandro Dell’Acqua is another fashion designer to capitalize on the demand for luxe sneakers. His spring 2009 collection includes a line of high and low tops. Like Lanvin and YSL, Alessandro Dell’Acqua keeps the design style of the sneaker classic and uses embellishments (patent leather, velcro straps and hardware) to make the shoe pop. The white leather and Vernice Blue patent shown above comes in other variations including nylon and patent leather. Alessandro Dell’Acqua Patent Leather Sneaker retails for $393.
