On one of my many travels through the vastness of the internet, I came across these beauties. At first I thought they were a Hermes X Vans collab (which, judging by these kicks would be an INSANELY awesome idea).
Turns out a gentleman by the name of Robert Verdi had them custom made from his personal Hermes silk scarf selection (Source: http://theoverthrow.com/site/blog/2011/06/07/vans-x-hermes-where-to-cop-hint-you-cant/)
I think these are EASILY the most beautiful pairs of shoes that I have ever seen in my life. The way they approach composition on these shoes has really made me think about the possibilities and fun I can have with the next pair of shoes I work on.
…I have NEVER had shoe envy like this before.
