Julian Hakes Mojito Shoe

Yeah, that's a shoe.

No, I wouldn't wear it.

Kat Von D julian hakes shoes

Kerazee ole Kat Von D does though, a lot. She seems to have a few pairs of these Julian Hakes Mojito (ok, is it me or does anyone else pronounce this, to themselves, mo-jee-toe?) shoes on the go and parades about in them often.

Kat von d julian hakes shoes

Yeah. Not feeling it.

In their defense, the shoes are designed by Hakes, an architect, who transitioned from buildings to brogues and wanted to challenge existing footwear preconceptions. There is apparently no sacrafice in support and comfort and that's great - I just think they're pretty ugly.

However, if you don't, then you can bag a pair for €200 on the Schuh website and good luck to you, madam.

I just feel the arch of you foot would be filthy after wearing them. That and the look repugnant.

They're like a weird slinky/corkscrew hybrid. Also have visions of dirty paws or feet being cut to ribbons!

Love Kat Von D. I think she considers her footwear to be pieces of art rather than......well... just shoes. She wears some crazy pairs. IMAGINE the looks you'd get (trying) to walk down the street in these!

I kinda like the shoes, I don't think I believe the not compromising on support thing though... I also kinda feel like any foot fat would be really obvious in these (I have really wide, really weird feet...don't ask!)
