Gianni Barbato Macrame High-Tops are the Ultimate Summer Shoe

Gianni Barbato has designed what could be the girliest summer sneaker ever… complete with doily-like lace, they are bad ass. If I saw a member of the opposite sex proudly rocking these white sneakers on the street, I would stop her and say something like, "'sup girl? I like yo’ shoes, wanna go to a movie?"

After she laughs in my face, she would curiously/reluctantly accept my offer. I would then earn her trust and, somewhere down the line, take her Gianni Barbato shoes. Then I would paint them black , put kick-ass man flames on the sides and wear them to a nightclub.

Sweet plan, Brian. Sweet plan.

Oh I almost forgot, check out more pics of these sweet summer kicks by Gianni Barbato above.
