Alexander Wang Sneaker Large Shoulder Bag: Kick It!

If you told me there’s a great bag that looks like a pair of sneakers (or two pairs of sneakers, actually), I would seriously question your judgment. But then if you told me it was, of course, by Alexander Wang, I would reconsider. That’s why we love Alex…
