Walk in Space

Walk in Space

I’m a forward thinking kinda gal.  I well and truly anticipate my landing on the moon during my life time.  It will happen and when it does, I’d very much like to wear Liam Fahy’s design that won him the Fashion Fringe Shoe competition, bagging him a paid internship with Rupert Sanderson.  The white shiny plastic/patent and the way it is cut up into pieces and overlaps and also the non-clompy wedge makes it the ideal shoe to take my first moon steps.  Yes, I am eliminating any rules of physics in this space-shoe equation.  Me thinks my chances of walking in the shoes as opposed to the moon are slightly bigger so I’ll also happily take pairing the shoes with a pair of skinny ruched black satin trousers, a white boiled wool big shouldered cape top and some Martin Margiela visor sunglasses as a sensible alternative.

    I can’t look at those and not think “Storm Trooper.”
    Not that it’s a bad thing. I enjoy sci-fi.

    I’m sure that I would be the only person in my town to own a pair of these. I would wear these with white jeans.

    True! It reminds me so much of Star Wars, but I love the concept. It looks oddly comfortable, but that’s just me.

    I see Storm Troopers in drag, not that that isn’t a good thing…
    Or, yeah, GITS – the Major could totally pull off this look.

    oh. so they remind everyone of storm troopers. haha guess i’m not orginial there. and i also agree with everyone that the storm troopers association isn’t a bad thing. they’re geek chic at it’s most original.

    They look really comfy!! I’d wear them with thick black tights and a REALLY volumous black dress, or something silver!!
