New Jon Buscemi Sneakers and Accessories Fall 2013 Collection
American designer Jon Buscemi is no stranger to putting his mark on footwear. Currently based in LA, the New York native has recently designed what’s supposed to be a side project branded after his namesake.
Besides the dope sneakers in this collection from Jon Buscemi, various accessories such as a dog leash, coffee cup holder, a skateboard, and a weekender bag are available. All these items are made from premium quality Italian leather.
The highlight of the collection — the Buscemi sneakers — have a mid top structure with some quite interesting qualities. They come in three colors: black, red, and white. The strange element about them is that they are modeled after the Hermès Birkin bag with features such as a lock, key, and key cover. The shoes even have the leather ankle strap.
Note that all of the hardware is 18k gold plated, has full grain Italian tumbled leather and calfskin linin. The overall look of the sneaker is pretty subtle with just the BUSCEMI name branded on the tongue.
The sneakers and accessories are long sold out at the UNION LA store and at Kith.
