Most of Gucci's sneaker silhouettes are painfully tacky and like to rely on an overabundance of monogram print.
When you're paying several hundred dollars for a (hopefully) once-in-awhile-wear shoe, it seems like that would be the last thing anyone would be after.
Luckily, Gucci plans to drop two high top boot-inspired sneakers for Spring 2011 that take on a much more subtle approach. Available in light brown and black bases, with trademark Gucci colors accenting each midsole, you can check for these to arrive at Gucci sneaker retailers and flagship stores alike in the near future.
If you have to show off some monogram, good news: You can roll the top down to reveal the brand's signature interlocking 'G' print canvas.
