These Alexander McQueen High Top Sneakers are a great reminder of what a talent the late fashion designer truly was. The Alexander McQueen High Top Sneakers come in both all-black leather or a leather and wool combo.

What I love about the Alexander McQueen High Top Sneakers are the small details. Check out the vertical skull-adorned zipper that runs along the side of the shoe. What a way to keep the legacy alive.

Implications - The passing of celebrities and icons can lead to an increase in customers' want for items that pay tribute to the figure. Businesses can attract buyers by offering goods that honor public figures, in times when much media attention is being given to them. The simple skull zipper design of the High Top Sneakers will attract a specific demographic of consumers with alternative interests.
