James Kearns 2013 Footwear Collection
Brilliant London based footwear designer James Kearns may not carry the name of everyone’s favorite post-future-neo label yet his namesake brand is one surely worth more then a few mentions. His latest footwear collection, which continues to see each piece handmade by the designer himself in his studio, is a minimalist’s dream wrapped in pig, horse, and calf leathers. James’ silhouettes of choice are a refreshing take at classic mens trainers as each stand more as architectural marvels then run of the mill footwear. Featuring high density footbeds hand sewn leather bands, last and leather laces, what James has perfected as a craftsmen is a feat larger more “Luxury” labels should take notice of. To further engrave the labels aesthetics into your mind they have also created a brief video piece highlighting one of their models the Guidi seen below.
