As someone who’s designed a few herself, I understand the aqua sock reference. And kudos to the creator, as all major design elements of this footwear (or is it sockware?) are present in the final product: the diamond textured rubber, neoprene upper with zig-zag stitching, pull tab & perforated sides. The outcome, however is neither fashionable, attractive, nor wearable in an urban setting (make that any setting!). Then again, neither is the object from which the inspiration was derived, so should we at all be surprised? Oops, there I go rhyming again…
On a prettier note, the Tron Legacy by Opening Ceremony apparel collection is fabulous!
