Hypebeast has early pictures of two pairs of the sneakers Mark Ronson designed for Gucci, and they're much preppier than we expected. The shoes will launch this Friday at the Gucci pop-up shop on Crosby Street. (Hypebeast reports the opening date as Saturday, but we've double-checked with Gucci.) After a two-week stint in Soho, they'll embark on a world tour, where they'll be joined by new Ronson-designed styles at every stop until all eighteen have debuted.
