I've been posting allot of masculine shoes lately so, in the interest of variety, I have decided to create some balance by posting these insane shoes from Versace s/s 10. I think Versace is at its best when it's completely over-the-top and this season they combined their trademark impressive sluttyness with Pierre Hardy Balenciaga-style futurism. The separated layers on the sole are genious. I feel like I just took my space helmet off and my head is going to explode.
via converseblogI have never seen Chuck Taylors look so luxurious and organic. Here's some info on them from the Converse blog:
Creating coveted versions of Converse’s most recognizable styles, Hiruma has replicated the silhouette of the Chuck Taylor All Star, Jack Purcell and One Star shoes using old-world construction techniques. Each shoe features beautiful, supple leathers –all hand-stitched from upper and rand to insole. Hiruma gives each shoe leather soles that echo finely made dress shoes, yet with ink printed logos and trademark detail that give them a playful, comfortable feeling. Each shoe comes in natural shades of tan, off-white and black leather with hand cut logos and detailing for the shoes uppers. The attention to detail includes elegant hand-stitched leather rands and toe bumpers and charming touches such as a hand-cut star cut out gracing the ends of each shoe’s leather laces.
