Alexis Sablone pro model skate shoes belonging to Sablone

Description (Brief):

One pair of white suede skate shoes with yellow stars and "Alexis" printed in yellow on each shoe. The shoes have white soles and white laces. This is the first pro model shoe for professional skateboarder Alexis Sablone and were supposed to be worn during the 2019 Shanghai X Games. When Sablone had arrived at the event she realized she had grabbed two left shoes and was in a panic because she did not have a spare pair to wear during the competition. A fan in the stands, wearing Sablone's recently released pro model shoe, overheard her predicament and lent her the shoes to wear. Sablone went on to win the competition and returned the shoes to the fan. These shoes are the ones she was supposed to wear at that competition.
