Wearable Art For Your Feet by Japanese Shoe Designer Tetsuya Uenobe

Back in my early club days one of my most coveted pair of shoes was a pair of Tokio Kumagai black suede pumps with funny, little whiskers jutting out all over.At a time when Japanese designers like Rei Kawakubo for Comme des Garcons and Yohji Yamamoto were the must-have uniform for the downtown art set, Tokio Kumagai designs– particularly the shoes– were right in step. Often extraordinary and whimsical, the shoes shared the Japanese minimalist fashion aesthetic of the time that still looks modern. The most iconic being most a pair of mouse flats long before Marc Jacobs turned a rodent into a chic shoe.>> SHOP FOR CUTE FLATSUnfortunately Kumagai passed away at an early age and there really have not been that many designers to fill his shoes when it comes to slightly wacky, yet very wearable art for your feet, that happen to have an animal influence.Enter Tetsuya Uenobe.Uenobe takes it up a notch with pieces of art that you happen to be able to wear. I was able to interview the designer and ask a few questions about his craft.
