My Latest Obsession: The Dirty Sneaker

June 16, 2011 § Leave a comment

This all started when I tried on a pair of Leather Crown sneakers at Koon.  They looked beat up, like I had worn them to a heavy metal concert where lots and lots of people with dirty soles jumped on them repeatedly.  But despite their weathered look, the suede felt nice and the structure of the shoes seems pretty sturdy.  They went perfectly with my black jeans and leather jacket, and for the 30 seconds they were on my feet, I had my model-off-duty look down pat!  I was in love.

Since then, I’ve noticed that several other companies have their own version of the dirty shoe.  My favorite are by an Italian company called Golden Goose, which is now everywhere in Apgujeong and Cheomdan-dong at retailers like Boon the Shop and Ecru.

Rag & Bone also has their own versions, although they’re much less dirty than either of the aforementioned ones.
