Editor’s Notes: COMME des GARÇONS Homme Plus’ eye-catching take on the classic wingtip brogue — outfitting the formal footwear with a multi-colored Vibram sole unit — can only be described as the mullet of footwear, business on the top and party on the bottom.
The design takes hybrid formal footwear to a new, daring level and we’re definitely here for it. Formal footwear has been making a comeback over the past twelve months and designers have been experimenting with reinventing old and, at times, overused designs. Here, Rei Kawakubo’s label has thrown caution to the wind and delivered an unexpectedly stylish new take on the classic wingtip brogue.
So, if you’ve ever got a meeting at 11 but a party to get to at 12, these are without a doubt the shoes for you. Shop them via the link above.
