Inspired by the original Ferragamo shoes worn by artist Andy Warhol, the Italian luxury brand has created a collection of shoes. The story behind them is great and most importantly true, which for once makes this “paint splatter” decoration worth it.
“Dover Street Market are excited to welcome Ferragamo Men’s shoes to the store, with the limited edition Ferragamo Creations shoe.
The Creations shoe was the only men’s shoe that Salvatore Ferragamo designed in his career, and the style was worn religiously by Andy Warhol.
The Ferragamo family won a pair of Andy Warhol’s Ferragamo shoes at auction after his death, which had paint splattered toes from his studio; this new line of shoes pays homage to Warhol’s originals, with each pair splattered with brushstrokes.”
The shoes are now available from Dover Street Market in London.
