Indiana-based artist David Norris is better known by his Instagram handle and brand name Kito Wares. You’ve probably seen his work already, whether it was through his highly skilled custom sneaker designs or, more recently, the Jag Runner.

The overarching trend in footwear right now is undoubtedly the rise in foam and rubber slip-ons. From Balenciaga to Off-White™, YEEZY, and basically every other relevant name in fashion, these alien slip-ons are everywhere right now and it makes for some real competition in who can create the most eye-catching design.

Recently, one design took Instagram by storm, racking up hundreds of thousands of likes and shares. But it didn’t come from one of the big names. Instead, it was from a designer by the name of Kito Wares.

The Kito Wares Jag Runner is a gnarled mess of jagged edges, overhanging fangs, and cracked finishes. It’s the chaotic final word in foam sandals. And we’re not the only ones who think so: the design has been a hit in terms of sales, with many catching Ls in their attempts to secure a pair.

But, while most attempts go awry, we just managed to cop a pair after seeing that they’re still in stock at Luisaviaroma. Retailing for $118, it’s a great opportunity to get your hands on the all-white Kito Wares Jag Runner before the black version drops and creates more hype around this silhouette.
