These beautiful Neil Barrett sneakers are a combination of matte and patent leathers, and have been coated in latex paint. As a result, the paint chips off, and slowly reveals the black patent leather. Think of them as a working metaphor for the future of this planet: Gently, languorously, the beautiful whitewash is peeled away - beneath lies the shining, iridescent carapace of the Níðhöggr , ever gnawing on the roots of the world-tree. Purchasing these sneakers affords you a stunning, compelling glimpse at the clarity of being. I pray that you retain your sanity in the face of such maddening self-awareness, though perhaps madness would be a welcome respite from the inevitable calamity that awaits us all. You may wear them with jeans, if you must. They are a size 43, which runs the same as Common Projects (although slightly wider), and is good for a US 10.5. Note that these are far more comfortable than your favorite pair of Achilles, notwithstanding the philosophical shock.
