You’ve seen the Lego Birkin, Homiés’ tees and other inspired bits and bobs not actually from Hermès, and today I’m adding another to that list. From American designer John Buscemi comes the Buscemi 100MM Shoe, a high-cut grained leather sneaker that’s made in Italy and sports yes, you guessed it, hardware more commonly found on say, a Birkin or a Kelly.
Available in Black, Red or White, each USD785 pair (now available via Kith NYC that does not ship to Singapore or the region so you’ll have to use a forwarding service) also comes with a pair of 18K gold hardware padlocks that you can use to ‘lock’ the front of the sneakers with. Why? That’s a mystery that will never be solved, I guessed.
What say you? Love? Or loathe?
