“Marquis” my words… “Noritaka Tatehana is going to be hot, hot, hot!”
This Tokyo based designer is not only a artisan with a massive 5 month waiting list but is the forbidden fruit of collectors and performers such as Lady Gaga.
These shoes are constructed on a special order basis and are all hand made. What are the cost of these bad ass boots? Anywhere from $5,000 to over $10,000. Any other hand made leather good reaches these prices easily without question for example a Hermes Birkin or a made to order Burberry or Louis Vuitton bag.
Which of these MAD kicks is my personal favorite? I think I would have to go with the apply named “Coral” Short Boot because I love pink but more so I LOVE Sting Ray! And Noritaka Tatehana did an expert job at placing the Stingray so the placoid scales line up evenly and therefore it probably takes anywhere from 4 to 6 or more Stingray(not in danger) hides for 1 pair of boots.
Which is your favorite? Let me know.
So if you can afford this price tag I recommend rocking these gravity benders to your next party(more specifically a party that’s 5 months away)!
