ROC STAR Fall/Winter 2008 collection marks the label’s first foray into the sneaker category.  Simply named “The Shoes”, it comes in all black or all white, a reflection of the growing popularity in monotone sequence.  The construction is mostly suede upper with 3 Velcro straps in patent leather on a mid-top frame.
