Heavy Machinery

>> I had Taiwanese shoe label Heavy Machine's S/S 11 PDF lying around in the lookbook store cupboard and though others have waxed lyrical about their new collection, what I did want to flag up is that they got themselves a new website that is now offering pre-orders on their S/S 11 collection.  The shape and colour palette pick n' mix, cut n' paste style of Heavy Machine's shoes aren't for everyone but it is a style that they're fast making their own at prices that are somewhere between high street and designer (and certainly reasonable for the amount of design packed into a shoe).  I can most definitely vouch for the comfort factor of their shoes testimonied by a true size 38 of their Tadao's Malachite style having the ability to pound miles of pavement with ease.  That particular curved v-shaped heel which I've worn to death, is now joined by other angular companions in this S/S 11 collection but they are still selling their debut collection on their website if you wish to look into older designs.

    I tried their shoes on at a store in Taiwan and they are indeed super-ridiculously comfortable. While I still prefer the colorful ones I do like that they started doing some more understated monochromes.

    Indeed, there is quite a bit of design sealed in these shoes; i adore the individuality and the sense of architectural background seized beneath each idea.Personally, I love the colour palette for each one; i think its quite mix’n match and very durable. Great post. X Neda x

    I love the whole design of the shoe, its nice to come across a shoe that is original and different, many are looking a bit samey. x

    these shoes are amazing. it’l like colourful blocks were assembled in cool geometric arrangements and then a magic wand was waved over it to make them come to life in shoe form. i especially love the detail of the curved heel.
    i still can’t really wear heels (broke my ankle in the pass, still getting used to non sneaker shoes again) but it wouldn’t atop me from owning a pair, even if it’s for display purposes only. home decor? why not.

    At first the idea of sort of curved shaped heels seemed odd, but the more I looked at the other designs it really made me more interested.

    These shoes are a bit heavy and with too much details but they are quite itneresting 🙂
