En Noir x Buscemi 125mm for Barney's New York
"Walking the streets of New York, it becomes readily apparent that wearing black is the color of choice for many urbanites. After all, the classic shade can be paired with just about any other color – a necessary trait in such a sartorially-conscious city. It makes sense then, that En Noir and Buscemi‘s highly anticipated new collaboration would take the form of Buscemi’s 120mm footwear silhouette – executed in a distinct black and white colorway. The upper of the shoe is composed of premium leather, laser-cut into a distinctive crocodile pattern. The round, streamlined shape of the forefoot gives the sneaker an athletic edge, while the oversized heel pull and geometric flaps at the heel make the sneaker unique enough for the streets. Subtle garnishes like the lock at the center and the collaborative branding truly distinguish this special sneaker, available exclusively at Barneys New York for $975 USD." via Hypebeast.com
I'm not usually a big fashion sneaker kind of guy but I like the style and look of these but not the price.
