I wouldn’t consider denim footwear to be all that appealing, apart from great collaborations done by Lanvin, Acne and Converse (to name a few amongst a very few), as most walk the fine line of looking too cheap or kitschy. But once in a while I’ll come across some shoes that are actually done well and worth checking out. Here are a few finds that I think are chic and great for jazzing up an outfit with an added touch of denim.
A denim dandy’s dream shoe, SS09′s Lanvin Richelieu cap-toe brogues, a great example of denim shoes done superbly!
