Last weekend I had the incredible opportunity of visiting London for my second time! Not only was I visiting the city, I was also attending the Farfetch x The Shoe Surgeon event which was honestly one of the best events I have ever attended. I want to thank Farfetch for the opportunity to be a part of this shoe surgery if I do say so myself. Essentially, everybody was was invited got to choose a designer shoe to customize to there hearts content. I personally knew I wanted a crazy shoe, so I opted for the Raf Simons x Adidas sneaker. To be honest, when I started to customizing the shoe, I had a feeling that I picked the wrong shoe and a more bare show would be better to deck out.
It all clicked when I realized I didc’t want to alter the body of the shoe too much but only the laces. The crazy lace pattern was all trial and error and I really love the way it turned out. The shoe was laced on my foot so it fits pretty perfectly (This shoe would not be very easy to relace on the daily…). Check out the photos throughout this post as they explain my process better than I could in words!
