The world of shoe designers is crowded enough without star architects trying to horn in on their racket. But that’s never stopped them before…
We just heard a rumor that Frank Gehry has whipped up a special shoe for the French cobblers at J. M. Weston. There’s no word on the whether they’ll be men’s or women’s, but since most of their stock is on the men’s side, we’d say the odds are with us. Of course, designing a brogue is quite a bit different from designing a museum, so there’s no telling what he’ll come up with.
Let’s just hope all the sharp angles are on the outside.
