With their numbers slowly climbing but not reaching the levels of some other trends, metal studs on sneakers are either soon to become a major force in ostentatious lifestyle designs, or perhaps destined to maintain a lower profile and keep some of their rebel mystique. So long as they don’t start popping up on every other shoe, studded kicks do indeed have a ‘hard’ look to them, as evidenced by this new Vanquish x Converse Skidgrip, whose overall sense of rebellious cool is furthered by the tonal black suede and leather combo, the latter of which gets a quilted touch. They also touch on the recent push toward wild animal prints with a leopard insole; are these worth importing from the Vanquish e-store?
Someone apparently doesn't know about how popular studded shoes are, not only in the sneaker world, but in the world of high fashion as well. I coulda swore these were womens shoes at first though. I think both sexes could rock these fine.
