Be Mrs Bright Stride With New Alejandro Ingelmo Spring 2013 TRON Sneakers
Though New York City-based footwear designer Alejandro Ingelmo often nods to his urban surroundings with sleek, futuristic silhouettes that feel as imposing and grandiose as skyscrapers and age-old bronze statues, he manages to infuse the vivacious spirit of his Cuban heritage into his pieces. His beloved TRON sneakers ($495 at AlejandroIngelmo.com), for instance, are stepping into the cosmos this Spring/Summer 2013 season in fluorescent shades reminiscent of the flashy costumes and neon lights at Havana’s Tropicana nightclub.
The TRON’s silhouette, of course, remains delightfully untouched: from its thick foam collar with its sloping shape, to the leather lining and raised rectangular and square cut-out shapes along the side panels, which reflect light for a playful, science fiction-worthy effect. But now, you can add a bit of Cirque du Soleil-flash to your ensemble with the neon orange, pink, and yellow colorways available — all currently available at AlejandroIngelmo.com.
