I’ve always enjoyed the feel of fur. I don’t condone the fur industry but I do like the feel of it. Now, the animal skin on this pair of sick sneakers from Dries Van Noten may not be fur but it still checks the box for providing details both textural and visual.
The risk of going the tacky route is huge when it comes to animal skin and animal prints but I admire how Mr Noten has taken the modern, tough route by complementing the animal skin with black accents, multiple lace-holes and a kick-ass belt buckle. It elevates this pair and adds a hit of cool that makes this piece that much more desirable.
