Pros

Alexander Wang is known for his deconstruction and he incorporated it on these sneakers. The new AW Bball sneakers are like your ordinary basketball shoes turned inside-out, particularly with how the laces envelop the foot. The interplay of various materials, such as the premium leather upper and the strips of elastic bands, make for a harmoniously elegant look. Moreover, the boost cushioning ups the comfort level tenfold.

Cons

Despite its name, the AW Bball shoes aren’t exactly the best pair to wear to play the sport. They look good, but it’s unsure whether they’ll feel good nor are they durable enough for basketball. Especially since the unusual lacing makes them seem easily breakable and can possibly lead to accidents on the court.
