Item Description

My inspiration for this pair of shoes was color! The vibrancy that I've been infusing into my work recently, and the exploration that I've been doing in the use of bold color in portrait painting have both been major focal points that have inspired the design for my shoes. Bright and bold colors exude a heightened energy, and lend toward capturing the expressions and personalities of both the portrait painted on the shoes, and the person wearing them.

Sizing: Mens 6 / Womens 8
