Designer Karim Rashid has a factor for ft. More particularly, the style we placed on our ft, whether or not it’s basic Pro Keds sneakers or biomorphic robotic manufactured trainers. Rashid’s curiosity in footwear just lately directed him into designing the exhibition for The Bata Shoe Museum’s Out of the Box: The Rise of Sneaker Culture, an exploration of the historical past of the sneaker from the nineteenth century by means of to in the present day. The man undoubtedly like his footwear.
And now a few of Rashid’s ardour for footwear is represented via his personal co-branded footwear, a Spring 2014 informal kicks line made in collaboration with Toronto-based mostly footwear and equipment model, Sully Wong. First introduced on the 2013 Magic Trade Show in Las Vegas, the white leather-based higher desert boot styled Karim for Sully Wong is now out there for buy in number of characteristically Karim colorways and patterns.
“I have all the time been very within the sneaker since I am a real believer of the age of casualism…the good advances in know-how, supplies, efficiency, design, and elegance. It appears that the chance of experimentation is infinite,” says Rashid.
Karim for Sully Wong is now out there in restricted portions on-line at Sully Wong.
