crooked walker custom kicks


I admit... I have a huge shoe and bag thing... I have tried to make an effort to transition one pair out of the closet, if a new pair comes in... that doesn't always prove too successful though. So imagine my delight when my husband Roger (aka Crooked Walker) was asked to design artwork for some Pro Keds for Artsprojekt. His mix tape illustrations look pretty sweet gracing these babies, if I do say so myself . The additional cool thing is that you can customize the shoes when you order them (hi top or lo top), including shoelace color, stitching color and eyelet color. Check them out here and here!

Those are utterly groovy. I have such a hard time purging shoes and bags, but it's really easy to buy them!

p.s. Lori is from the West Side near UBC but those photos of water and driftwood were taken in a river/inlet off of Harrison Lake in the Lower Mainland. I had to throw them in because I thought they were gorgeous.

ohmigosh, i remember when KEds came out with a "color your own" Keds (in the 1980s)... a highly coveted item! :) i was lucky enough to have a pair!! i love the look of keds but the flatness of them seems like it could hurt my older feet :)
