Gucci has your white sneaker game on lock this summer, and we've got the images to prove it. The Italian luxury brand has made their signature Ace sneaker the focal point of their pre-fall 2016 collection — creating seven new collector editions that will hit stores this May.

The brand says they serve as a canvas for creative director Alessandro Michele, who kicked the basic white sneakers up a notch with symbolic embellishments and appliqués (plenty of bees, thunderbolts, and stars). Like most other luxury brands, Gucci also pulled a Stan Smith when it came to the colored heel tab. There's are laminated snakeskin, however, so that's about as luxury as it gets.

These babies will hit stores in a couple of weeks, but you can check out the new styles with pricing in our gallery above.
