In the lexicon of “boy-meets-girl” romances, there may be one love hardly ever explored: our love of sneakers (foot fetishes however). We additionally love nothing greater than a Black style second, so the long-awaited launch of the collaboration between two of our favourite labels—Brother Vellies and Pyer Moss—which walked the runway throughout Pyer Moss’ epic presentation at Brooklyn’s Kings Theatre in September 2019 is the pick-me-up we so desperately want in a very darkish 12 months.
Granted, it has been over a 12 months since we first caught a glimpse of this collaboration. But our curiosity was as soon as once more piqued when Zendaya appeared within the September 2020 cowl story for InFashion, stalking throughout a rooftop in a tunic and matching boots printed with vibrant paintings by not too long ago exonerated artist Richard Phillips. Per Pyer Moss, “the types pay homage to the creativity, energy, and angle of the Godmother of Rock-n-Roll, Sister Rosetta Tharpe”—giving new that means to the phrase “paint it Black.”
Those boots are the hero piece of a assortment which incorporates color-blocked, winged stilettos, tidy, rock-and-roll-ready Chelsea boots, and high-heeled sock booties emblazoned with the Pyer Moss brand (to let ’em know who obtained you on the great foot). And whereas we would by no means advocate reckless spending (who’re we kidding—pandemic retail remedy is actual) ought to you might have the discretionary finances (or simply really feel inclined to deal with your self, which, given the 12 months we have had so far, no judgments), the Brother Vellies by Pyer Moss will likely be out there on Saturday, Oct. 24 at 12 pm ET.
