One Word: Cute
[DISCLAIMER: NOT A PAID AD] So I jumped in the Crocs bandwagon in 2006 and managed to shell out for two pairs (navy blue and coal). I still find them comfy and versatile such that I don’t mind those so-called fashionistas retching. Lately, the prototype-sters are going mad with award-winning Sanuk and the likes to fit those bony toes in. And this 2010, look what we’ve got shorty. I mean Shudy. Shoe+Ready. As in “Ready-made shoe.” Huh?
Ready-made shoes for consumers who still are contemplating on buying them? They must be psychic! Now that would get me into buying. Aside from that they’re totally, wait for the highfalutin term… CUTE.
Shudy is a collection of recycled plastic and rubber-soled shoes, finely perforated for comfort, which comes in a kaleidoscope of multiple colors, ranging from dainty pastel tones to scrumptious sorbets. [MensFashionByFrancesco]
The shoes may look like leather but I believe it’s rubber. More like channeling some 50s vibe from something that’s imported from Italy. Moreover, like Crocs, they can be chosen in different colors! I have no beef with the prototype revolution but I hope they don’t cost that much.
Shudy shoes embody altogether something called Crackling Art movement in 1983 which aimed to defy environmental problems through turning what’s natural into artificial. More like recycling/reusing to leech some greater value. A la the French urinal-cum-fountain artiste Marcel Duchamp, as what’s said by Francesco.
As for now, the most environmental thing for me to do is to ogle at their cuteness. I know, how infantile.
PS They also have these stuff for women.
