Description
Bespoke leather slip on shoes tattooed with scrolling baroque inspired designs, rabbits and ink blotting. The sculptural shape of the shoe is clog-like in design with both the upper and lower sections of the shoe merging into a continuous form to an elongated toe. The underside of the shoe features a raised sutured seam, rubber sole and heel.
