Raf Simons & Dr.Martens Hate Nature and Your Eyes
I’ve often heard people refer to their feet as “pretty” or “cute” or some other misplaced, pleasant seeming adjective. Feet are ugly. All feet are ugly, horrible things. That’s why biology has managed to put them as far away from our line of sight as is possible.
With time and craftsmanship man has managed to turn the great eyesore of the human body into one of its crowning achievements, witness the works of John Lobb or Salvatore Ferragamo for instance. But then there are others like Raf Simons. In his latest collaboration with Dr. Martens Mr. Simon’s turns out a series of attention drawing, nausea inducing, patent leather monstrosities that have no place outside of a blind man’s nightmares.
