The 5 best Sneakers to look on point at Art Basel Miami Give me Five

Among the meticulous choice of color, printing, materials; between research innovation, technology, comfort and among the various focus on design and overall appeal of the models on the market, the factors to be considered are frighteningly many. Hence each of us wearing the unwitting role of the art critic, carefully evaluating every single detail, until you reach the gratifying final choice, one that repays all intellectual efforts made in research.
