Unzipped: Alejandro Ingelmo

The Soho-based shoe designer unpacks his gym bag.

For Alejandro Ingelmo, the devil is truly in the details. Whether it’s the swoop of a sole on his meticulously crafted, sky-high pumps or the satisfying glide of a quality zipper pull, he’s obsessive about function. So it stands to reason that the Cuban designer, who does cardio intervals and free weights five times a week and recently took up Pilates (“it sounds girly, but it’s really hard,” he says), would be particularly particular about the items that get him through a workout.
