So I took a road trip through the Arizona desert, and decided that I wanted to reproduce the same color scheme on a pair of shoes.  Except in metallics.

 

I started from scratch -- where "scratch" is an affectionate nickname for a very well-loved pair of black AE Fairfax -- and here's what I wound up with. 

The studs might have some haters here, but I like the contrast against the background.

 

 

 

 

Hard to capture the color, they really look different from every angle and every level of light.

 

The above pictures are taken after about 10 wears = about 20-25 miles of walking.  The color has stayed on better than I thought it would.

 

On the street:

 

 

The only downside is that I make less eye contact when I'm wearing them, because my own feet are distracting me.

Version 0.9.

 

Got good super soft suede lace to use.  Final version will be about an inch shorter so it's just above my knee-pits instead of in them.

 

As a note, it doesn't normally make a turtle shell shape through the whole thing, that's just because I'm arching my back and twisting weird to take the photo

i don't think i've ever seen you wear those shoes in a fit. i don't normally like slippers, but in a context like this i think it works well. shirt is looking good too, better than i'd anticipated.

haha thanks, but they're just the slippers I wear around the house.  They don't go outside.  But I agree they actually look good here.

Thrifted some black wingtips, painted the midsoles gold.

Simple project.

Ballin' on a budget.

 

Been wearing these with black/white jeans but maybe that isn't the right thing to do ?

If you don't mind being mistaken for a pirate.

Seriously though, could be cool.

I should do it with the expectation that I might need to scrap it because it might make me look like a character from dragonheart (here specifically the lord who is half dressed when Draco starts messing up his villagers fields).
