JOHN VARVATOS 315 BOWERY (New York) Men's Hi-Top Sneakers

This very limitedly produced shoe from John Varvatos 315 Bowery is a fearlessly stealthy leather hi-top, featuring cross-hatched heel counter and toe box accents.
Clean lines and premium leather elevate the streetwise—and super-expensive—style, resulting in a hybrid sneaker of rare form. Premium black calf leather construction.
Showcase the ankle-grazing cut by rolling up the cuffs of your jeans.
(RRP US$498)

Music is embedded deep within the heart of John Varvatos. Known for his rock and roll-inspired style, the designer’s famed 315 Bowery boutique in New York City was formerly CBGB & OMFUG, which stands for ‘Country Bluegrass Blues and Other Music For Uplifting Gormandizers’ (a legendary underground music/punk club in the 1970s). The ‘315 Bowery’ label is basically created to honour the spirit of the store, other merchandise sold here are also hand-selected so that they’re ‘appropriately punky’. The store is also apparently manned by staff members who are made up of either musicians or the ‘music-obsessed’.
