It's finally ladies' night in Sneaker Land.
After some exciting men's sneaker collaborations (which some of you ladies with larger feet got to enjoy), DC Shoes is giving female kicksaholics a treat with the DC Shoes x Kendo Double Label Retailer Project "Spruce Kendo" sneaker.
The first women's sneaker in DC's Double Label Retailer Project, the "Spruce Kendo," features reptile skins and leather in rich copper, bronze, gold, tan and brick red hues that shimmer in the light. Due to the lenticular technique used to apply the animal skins, the material has this gradient effect that makes it look a bit different with every glance. The Kendo logo is featured on the heel and the insole, while a metallic accent on the side of the sneaker captured the DC logo.
The way these fabrics are manipulated so as to create an intriguing mosaic of textures and hues speaks to the concept Kendo was hoping to convey with this sneaker: the idea that women have versatile and ever-changing style needs and constantly evolving aesthetic sensibilities.
