Hakes the architectural designer has evolved to become the latest and most unique shoe designers over the past few years, why you may ask, well, his designs instantly cause the viewer to initially raise an eyebrow at the prospect that the abstract “piece of art” is actually a fully functional shoe.. His years and history in architecture had probably led him to this natural progression to think outside of the box to create these curly and rather curvy yet very mind boggling designer shoes that really do require extra thought when putting them on.
Its probably best to stay away from these after a few glasses of champagne…you have been warned! Pictures to follow and enjoy!
The London born designer came up with the idea from analysing current traditional shoes which have ultimately been a simple and obvious progression and evolution in terms of design from the sandal, Julian Hakes saw to challenge this completely revolutionising and rethinking the footplate and the word ‘SHOE’ as a whole.
“The result of this process was Hakes Mojito – we named it this as it was rather like a twist of lime peel. It is a unique shoe design concept, a single wrapped geometry which starts under the ball of the foot, sweeps over the bridge, then down below the heel before twisting back on itself to provide the support for the heel and ankle”
INDEED HE DID!
The shoes are glorious incredibly individual and eye catching and a complete 180 degrees on current shoe fashion and trends, something different from the much loved red heel that everyone seems to wear now. I cannot wait to see these blanket cover the entire celebrity wardrobe.
Now this is signature piece to take note of and his name is:-
HAKES- YOU HAVE BEEN TOLD!
