This guy knows how to work with leather! Bill Lavin, everyone’s favorite belt designer, has just introduced a super cool collection of shoes, sneakers and boots. Featuring top quality calfskins dyed in rich two-tone colorways, the shoes are then screen printed for a special vintage look. (Lighter weight floral printed suedes are perfect for spring/summer.) Wholesale prices range from $64-$105 for suggested retails of $198-$300.
Not to disappoint his loyal fans, Lavin is also doing rock-inspired skull sneakers and boots, covering the entire upper with randomly-placed skull ornaments. Check it out at the Aquarius Showroom, 1412 Broadway and, in August, at The Tents at Project Vegas. More info: 212-695-6816.
