Floris about this shoe:
Some stories start to lead their own life. I found that out with this shoe. Underneath the sole of this shoe there is a drawing of a folded bird. I made this years ago, but I have not been involved with it since. A while back I was in our shop in Antwerp. I always have a chat to see how things are and what is selling well. They all agreed that there was one shoe that was doing really well: ‘The flamingo’. I did not understand one bit. But finally I found out that it was all about the bird underneath this shoe. Maybe slightly influenced by the famous ZOO of Antwerp around the corner of the shoe but the whole line was renamed ‘The flamingo’. So if you consider this shoe, it is now called: ‘The Flamingo’!
A dressed lace-up shoe made from cognac coloured calf skin. The shoes are hand-dyed. The leather is brushed, giving it a silk sheen. They feature electric blue suede piping along the heel and the tongue. The electric blue cotton lace is run through three eyelets. The top eyelet features a nest. The heel consists of several layers of leather and ends in a dark blue rubber heel tip. The dark blue sole is rubber as well. The lining is leather. The inner sole is removable.
