We’ve seen plenty of sneakers inspired by dress shoes but it’s not too often that we see it go the other way, but now Color of Life Branding and Greenwich Vintage have done just that with their new “Grown Man Solar Red” longwings. Inspired by the Air Yeezy’s “Solar Red” colorway, the collaborators have taken classic longwing shoes and transformed them into something completely new. Handmade in America by Greenwich Vintage’s master cobbler Tamas “Zen” Pomazi, the shoes feature rich black leather uppers with painted interior linings, and glow-in-the-dark Bricklayer soles. Made on a built-to-order basis, just 25 pairs of these will be made before the design is shelved. Find out more and inquire about a pair of your own at Greenwich Vintage.
