geta trippen boot


the Trippen boot. the German shoe company specializes in using "modern design [combining] environmental friendliness, sustainability and social responsibility." this Lucifer boot consists of a shaft cut to resemble an downwards cloven hoof, hence the name association to the devil. however, when I first saw the shoe, I was quickly reminded of the traditional Japanese geta sandals, worn by geishas and sumo wrestlers. either way, this shoe is pretty awesome.
