Nicholas Kirkwood designed some shoesies for the Keith Haring Foundation. Haring was the 80’s pop artist extraordinaire – you’ll recognise the print instantly.  Kirkwood wanted to incorporate Haring’s graphics into his own shoe designs. I’m not digging it.

Which is sad, as I do love a good Nicholas Kirkwood shoe (not that I’m able to afford them mind), but I just think these are ridiculous. Homage all you like, but these just look  a little stoopid. Although, if they are just collectors items for presentation in glass cabinets, then I’m all aboard. But the fact I can see Paloma Faith in them is such a turn off.
