platform studs

Wednesday, November 19, 2008

This week's shoe is from the American design house of Rock & Republic. The company was started by avid cyclist Michael Ball. A Southern California native, Ball was at the top of the cycling circuit in the late 80s. He designed clothing for his team as well as other cyclists before injuring himself in a cycling crash. At this time he was forced to move in a different direction and began a partnership with Xerox, launching them into the fashion world for the very first time. In 2002 he designed his first pair of jeans which has since then been the foundation of this blooming company. Sporting an item from the Rock and Republic line not only says that you are stylish, but that you are a little bit rock-n-roll! This shoe pretty much says it all!

You can find these edgy platforms at Zappos Couture.
