Whenever a couture fashion house attempts to create a street shoe, very few turn out as sleek ans sharp as the Marc Jacobs wingtip sneaker from the 2012 Spring/Summer Footwear Collection.

Many sneaker addicts fall out of favor with couture footwear fast, as the attempts are considered too exotic or mainstream, like the Kanye West and Louis Vuitton collaborations. However, the Marc Jacobs wingtip sneakers defintely hold up to the criticisms. The shoes feature a crisp, white colorway with a blue suede trim. Along the overlapping suede are perforated holes, giving the shoe a wingtip feel. An egg-white rubber sole and embroidered logo finish off the shoe details.

No doubt these shoes are stunning and well-crafted; however, the commanding price of $545 may scare some buyers away.
