SHOE PORN THURSDAY

These Mojito Shoes are the product of Julian Hakes, a London-based architect with an amazing success story.  He first released early concept images of the design for a new ladies fashion footwear concept on design blog Dezeen.  Later that evening, the editor of Dezeen called Julian to tell him his design had gone viral.  Blogger Gizmodo snapped up the story and registered over 100,000 hits within hours.  A few days later, a well-known ex-model in New York called Julian Hakes requesting 2 pairs in her size for an upcoming show, in which Julian realized he needed to make this concept into a reality.  With help from bloggers and fashion followers, the concept was made into a conceptual reality.  After 2 years, Hakes has been working to refine every delicate, sculptural curve and twist to make this a very light, comfortable and elegant design.  Hakes team is busy making this design a reality and we will expect to have the first collection ‘The Hakes Mojito’ ready for the summer party season.
