    Alejandro Ingelmo's edgy steppers and metallic high-tops had us at hello, so when we heard he was coming out with a brand-new, lower priced collection, we were more than intrigued — we were first-boyfriend-status obsessed.

    The best part? Not only are we hosting an exclusive presale of four amazing shoe styles from the new line (shop them here!), but Alejandro is also giving us the ultimate insider access to the trip to Cuba that reconnected him with his roots...and inspired his new line, Ingelmo.

Click through as the designer takes us through the personal photos that capture his Cuban love story...and get ready to fall head over heels.
