NOW NEW: BUSCEMI X TODD SELBY
And now for a touch of bling. The latest luxe version of Buscemi’s signature 100mm sneaker is the fruit of a collaboration with American photographer-cum-artist Todd Selby, a.k.a The Selby, who lent his artsy vein to this new mid-top kick. In full-grain calfskin, it is adorned with different gold-foil printed motifs, inspired by Selby’s original artwork. Other defining features are the Hermes Birkin bag-inspired gold-plated hardware, hand-painted edges, key clochette and heel handle.
“For this collaboration with Buscemi I did some watercolor paintings of all the random things that inspire me, lobsters, cats, Chinese take-out, manhole covers, fire hydrants, you know… the good stuff,” says Selby. Proceeds from each Buscemi X The Selby pair sold will go to Creative Growth, a great charity that supports people with disabilities doing art.
