On Our Radar: Alejandro Ingelmo Sneakers
Alejandro Ingelmo is certainly not the first designer to get on the fashion sneaker bandwagon—names like Isabel Marant, Y-3, and Marc Jacobs come to mind. But the Cuban footwear aficionado is making moves when it comes to his best-selling Toby low-top sneaker, which, up until now, was only made for his male clientele. Following high demand from the ladies who love his line, Ingelmo is offering a more feminine version of the design. Feast your eyes on the Toby’s latest incarnation, done in a gray leopard velvet with black leather piping (pictured). Conveniently, with croc so hot right now (see today’s In the Mood For), the sneaker also comes in an embossed crocodile velvet, with the same $395 price tag. The Toby hits the designer’s store and Web site in July.
