CHECK OUT THE MOJITO SHOES BY JULIAN HAKES- MOST DEFINITELY THE NEW BIG THING
It’s most likely that very soon, you all would soon start seeing our ever insatiable fashionistas/style mavens showing off wearing this futuristic shoes designed by Mr Julian Hakes who before his foray into designing shoes , was an architect better known for designing bridges . The thought to design shoes first came to the British Architect one day in 2003 and it took all of a decade for the idea to take shape.
First he had thought of the shoe design in 2003, but then it could be drawn, but couldn’t be built. It took until 2009, while alone at the office, all the other staff members’ gone home after making a few mojitos, he decided to get his tracing paper and a scalpel and that was the beginning of what became the Mojito shoe ‘the shoe without bridge’.
