These are the coolest sneakers in 2009! Designer Alessandro Dell'Acqua's two-tone high-tops are a great melange of 80's design with a futuristic twist.
These Alessandro Dell'Acqua sneakers prove that straps and snaps are back in a big way. They remind me of something Marty McFly from 'Back to the Future' would wear.
Implications - Retro-inspired fashion doesn't always mean that you have to go back in time and ignore what's right in front of your face. What makes this unusual set of sneakers so interesting is that it takes its cues both from the past and from the present in combining an 80's aesthetic with a modern-day sense of hybridization. That is a recipe for success that should be openly embraced whenever possible.
