Gucci Icon-Temporary Gucci Ronson Sneakers
These aren’t exactly new, but it is hard to find since it can only be purchased from Gucci’s Icon-Temporary boutique.
And what’s so special about this Gucci Icon-Temporary boutique?
Well, for starters, the boutique travels from one major city to another. And for another, it sells limited edition pieces, like these sneakers developed in collaboration with Mark Ronson.
The Icon-Temporary boutique kicked off in New York last October 2009; then it went to Tokyo; and last week, it popped up in Covent Garden, London.
The opening was well celebrated with a party attended by none other than Gucci’s Creative Director, Frida Giannini, and the inspiration behind the shoes, gorgeous Mark Ronson.

Each pair of Gucci Ronson sneakers cost around $500. If you want a pair, you’ll have to catch the flash boutique because these aren’t available for sale online either.
Now if you like how these colorful shoes look but you don’t exactly want to spend half a thousand dollars for a pair, then simply go with these hot and very in-season colorful boat shoes instead!
