Steven Harrington x Generic Surplus 2012 Spring/Summer Desert Boot
Fascinated with the mystical Mayan legend surrounding the thirteen lost crystal skulls, Los Angeles-based artist Steven Harrington set out to bury his own crystal skull sculpture in the Californian desert in hopes that his offering would bring the remaining skulls into existence and divulge the secrets of the universe. As Harrington and his crew set out on their mission, they brought along Generic Surplus to help showcase the collaborative effort between the artist and California shoemaker: a reinterpreted desert boot. Known for his psychedelic desert motifs, Generic Surplus knew Harrington would be an excellent match to craft a Mayan-inspired desert boot. Complete with tobacco brown beeswax leather, an EVA sole, and artist graphics on the heel and insole, this joint venture certainly inspires the inner treasure hunter to take utilitarian garments and put them to use searching for forgotten legends. The Generic Surplus x Steven Harrington Desert Boot will be available for the spring and summer months, with a launch party going down January 24 at El Chavo in Los Angeles.
