As a shoe designer I draw inspiration from my own life’s experiences that inform my vision. One of the impulses behind my drive to design shoes is that when I need a special occasion shoe I find that my dream shoes aren’t out there in the market place. There simply isn’t a shoe I wish to wear on the red carpet and on stage hence I ventured out into creating it. For me the ideal red carpet/stage shoe is anything but black. Us – guys – are already limited in our formal wear choices – though fashion is evolving now more than ever and more and more exciting options and designs emerge before us to replace the old and ultra-conservative tuxedo or tails. But I digress….back to shoes! Assuming you are wearing more-or-less traditional attire of blazer and pants (suit or even tux) the only territory open to self-expression and true adventure is your footwear. This is where a daring choice can transform a boring look into exciting one, and ‘safe-playing’ into ‘risk-taking’ and land you on everyone’s best-dressed list.
Spider-Man Edition Swarovski Strass Shoes designed and made By Konstantin
This is where I got an idea not only to create full swarovski strass shoes (which are done beautifully by Christian Louboutin, Louis Leeman and Giuseppe Zanotti) but really to fashion a custom design using special effects stones not used in commercial production and create unique pattern for the upper of the shoe. Enter Spider-Man Edition meridian blue lace-ups with dark siam spiders. We used Meridian Blue Swarovski flatbacks in sizes ss5, ss7, ss9 and ss12 and dark siam ss5, ss7 and ss9.
