These Black Scale sneakers are covered in rough, scale-like material that make them look straight out of a science fiction movie. Would you let these shoes slither onto your feet?
The shoe comes as a collaboration between Black Scale and Gourmet and builds on the 35 silhouette. The design is interesting because it's dark enough that it carries a bit of understated strength, but its texture makes it stand out in a crowd. The upper section is dominated by dark leather slabs. The side of the slabs is a tan color, which simply by way of the leather cut end up accenting the shoe. The bottom section of the shoe is a simple white trim.
This sneaker is part of Black Scale's 2013 fall/winter collection.
