I am in love with this shoe- the oversized and graduated “studs”, the all-black-everything appearance with that tiny strip of white, the extra-grip outer soles.. These shoes look like, to me, something that a spy would wear to a fancy party so she can look cool but still whoop some ass and run if she needed to.
The designer is Alejandro Inglemo, a Parson’s educated shoe fanatic. I never heard of him until today but I am now hooked.
According to his WEBSITE:
This September, Ingelmo opened his first boutique at 51 Wooster Street in Soho, New York. As a forth generation shoemaker, he has followed in his family’s footsteps with his boutique inspired by the shoe store his grandfather owned in Cuba. With thoughtful touches reminiscent of the Cuban shop, Ingelmo’s walls are adorned with nostalgic black and white images of his grandfather’s factory and store. Midcentury furniture and classic shoeboxes lining the walls mix with the modern lighting and fixtures to bring to life the extensive lineage and Ingelmo’s passion for shoemaking.
