PURLICUE - AVANT-GARDE FOOTWEAR
Introducing Purlicue, designer Su Junhua takes the classic sneaker silhouette and turns it on its head changing the mentality of the regular sneaker by using a total leather construction with a calfskin leather wrapped sole unit. The Chinese brand serves up a series of leather wrapped sneakers in a butter-soft, natural calf leather with sheepskin linings. The leather soles encase ones made of rubber and as each sole accumulates wear over time, the rubber is deliberately exposed and can be concealed once again by adding a new leather unit.
Su Junhua, the exciting designer behind the emerging brand states "the excess portion of the shoes can be trimmed as you wish... or remain as it is" giving the wearer complete freedom over the aesthetic of their sneakers. Purlicue is definitely an upcoming label with a bright future.
