The Alexander McQueen aptly named "oversized sneaker"(original, right?) features smooth calf leather, large flat laces, oversized rubber soles, and finished with an Alexander McQueen signature on the tongue.

The Air Vapormax brings comfort to new heights. A mesh design sits atop the lightweight, bouncy cushioning for the feeling that you're defying gravity (I can vouch for this). Carved-out sections in the sole help keep the shoe incredibly flexible and lightweight, while the durable design will help keep these looking newer for longer.

Let me introduce you to, quite possibly, the most bad-ass trainer you'll ever see. The Gucci will help you reach new heights (and probably social status. Everyone want's to be friends with the woman who has these). These statement trainers are designed to glimmer and stand out from every angle. Made from silver glittered leather, they're set on a lightweight platform sole and finished with the house's signature blue, red and white webbing. Wear yours to add impact to tailoring or cropped denim. Not for wallflowers.
