I believe graffiti is urban art. I’m not talking about tagging but good, solid graffiti. Brilliant colours. Distinct styles. Spontaneous lines and placement. Love it. I particularly love too that graffiti artists have this underlying respect when choosing their canvas. Especially in Amsterdam, I noticed that only the grubby buildings or temporary structures got, rather thankfully, swathed in street style.
So all that said, you perhaps can imagine my happiness at finding these babies.
Ndeur is a T.O. graffiti artist who’s painting pumps in Paris, where these were supposedly first spotted. Graffiti still on the streets, but now in motion. And I think the price is affordable given the amount of time that goes into each pair and that you end up with one-of-a-kind footwear. Great stuff.
