Bespoke: Libertad De La Segundo

I am not one that typically likes loud or busy patterns.  My personal choice is to typically go with earth tones… but when I walked into 21 Mercer and saw the various Liberty Prints, I knew I had to use one of them.  This particular shoe pays ode to two of my favorite rap groups.. De La Soul & A Tribe Called Quest.  Some folks loved this shoe, while others detailed their disdain.  I’ll update later with proper details.

Bespoke: Scotch & Malbec

This was my first bespoke that I made at 21 Mercer in March 2013. I’ve always been into fashion/footwear, but it took me a long time to actually make the move to create something. From the time I walked into the lab, I knew I was hooked.  Materials include: brown twisted croc upper, sail midsole, gum outsole, cork swoosh, backtab, tongue, tongue tab & insole.  Estadio laces, top eyelets, leather sock liner and leather secondary swoosh.  Liberty print dresses the interior as well.
