JULIUS _7 377FWM5 COW LEATHER ZIP SNEAKER SPRING SUMMER 2012
First of the SS12 posts are these Cow Leather Zip Sneakers from JULIUS. I’ve always been a fan of the footwear as you may know from the previous JULIUS AW11 POST where I spoke of the Engineer Boot that will hopefully making it’s way into my collection at some point, but these are next level. I thought the use of a zip in footwear couldn’t be beaten after seeing SASQUATCHfabrix’s Zenarchy double zip baseball sneaker HERE for SS11 but this may have just blown it out of the water. It’s straight up solid like the Rick Owens, which seem to get better with age from personal experience and these will no doubt be the same. They come up on an ankle height with a subtle thin rubber sole, which isn’t usually the case with these ‘avant-garde’ labels but the main attention to detail lies within the centre zip panel. The choice of the thinner coated laces weaved into the numerous eyelets keep it stealth and clean. Overall it’s a perfect addition to any collection but you have been warned, it will come with that JULIUS price tag we all love and know.
