To get the factory ready distressed look is not an easy feat. We’ve seen enough mishaps in distressed denim and t-shirts to make us stop and re-examine the purpose of distressing. But when it is done well, it works. These high-top sneakers from Ann Demeulemeester are a great example of properly executed distressed fashion. The black and brown leather rises up to the mid calf and looks as if they have been out riding in a Nevada sandstorm for decades. Well done and available from Browns. (via supertalk).
