bespoke: the gift.

The Gift.  This was an exclusive Bespoke made by 21 Mercer in 2011.  Only 12 pairs or so were made and 4 were given out via a twitter competition that poised some tricky questions.  The shoe has some incredible details and its hard to translate them in pictures.  Definitely a shoe that must be seen in person to give you the full effect.

The upper is draped with a dark denim with some nice contrast stitching. Cork backtab with a cork midsole sitting on top of a necessary gum outsole.  Even some red pivots on the outsole.  Suede swooshes and glove leather for the insole.  The liner is constructed of an almost foil material that gives you a feel of wrapping paper.  “Merry Christmas” is lasered all over the sock liner.  There is a “gift” embroidered on the heal of both shoes and “the gift” again is symbolized on the deubre.  The top eyelets have a gold color and it really ropes up the holiday themed shoe.

Safe to say, I am extremely pleased to have these in my collection.  A true gift.
