DC Shoes linked up with Miami Ink tattoo artist Darren Brass to collaborate on a collection featuring men’s and women’s shoes, hoodies and New Era caps. The two women’s shoes he designed are featured above. Ever-curious about what runs through a man’s mind when he picks up a pen and sets out to create an item that will appeal to the opposite sex, we asked Darren what the difference was between his approach toward women versus men.  And this is what he said:

“When I knew I was going to have the opportunity to design a women’s shoe with DC, I was excited because I knew I would be able  to go all out creatively. I really looked forward to this part of the project. It allowed me to really open up the creative reservoir. With women’s shoes you really don’t have any limitations, and with that in mind I went for mine. It was also a great experience working with DC, who was completely open to the direction I wanted to go with these shoes and who also had the resources to get the amazing materials to work with. I really wanted to design something that would be appreciated like a sweet basket of peaches or or the finest grapes on the vine.”

Personally, I am most partial to the basket weave pair on the right. It’s hard to imagine summer with the snow pouring down outside my window as I type this, but imagine how cute those would be on a boardwalk with a pair of short shorts. Fresh like a sweet pineapple!
