Mens footwear designers have stepped up the fashion quotient for spring 2015 offering an array of gold, silver and other metallic-colored sport shoes in both high top and low top styles. But don't expect to see any of these out on the basketball court, these are purely for street and club life. They also shouldn't be considered disposable footwear, with many retailing for more than $500.
