Burnished is the new black with Rei Kawakubo’s minimal deconstructionist tendencies, as seem from the new Lewis Leather Sneaker from Dover Street Market. As previously reported, Rei Kawakubo’s retail venture, Dover Street Market had expanded beyond its Dover Street quarters and into Japan’s online retail community, ZOZOVILLA. Amongst the fresh line-up of Dover Street Market items that are now available, the Lewis Leather Sneaker is eye catching as it is immediately reminiscent of the perennial retro favorite, Converse Chuck Taylor All Star. These sneakers are constructed with a mix of dyed canvas and leather, and packed with a non-nonchalant rocker attitude with a zipper in the heel and deliberately dyed soles. A buckled leather panel that stretches across the heel gives the shoes that extra kick of edginess. The shoes are faded and dyed individually, so each pair has a unique look. The shoes are available in grey and blue, dive bar and live concert ready, and they are now available for pre-order online at Dover Street Market ZOZOVILLA.
