I've been M.I.A. lately working on handbags of all things. however, I did get a chance to go to Solecon # in brooklyn last weekend and unveiled 5 new pairs of sneakers I've been working on. a pair of Nike Pepper Lows, 2 pairs of Converse, one pair of Creative Recreations, Pumas and finally what ill be showing off today; a pair of Supra Society Mid's
This pair of kicks are a tie in to some of the zipper bracelets i recently dropped. I wanted to keep the waxed canvas body of the the original but put my own spin on it so I replaced the tongue (it has a very different setup inside to the conventional tongue. more like a sport shoe) with a black pony to give it a contrasting black sheen compared to the matte of the waxed canvas
the heel was also replaced by a gold hounds-tooth lambskin I've been working with lately.
let me know what you think.
