    The handstitched (?) detailing is really really cool. Great shots too, although would love to see them on a person or at least clearer pics eventually!

    Is that a long coat with a fur collar?

    Default Pollyanna visit this weekend

    Thanks very much for all your comments. I will try to fill you in later on some of the questions, perhaps in the rather extensive special fabric story I am trying to write up for this SZ thread at the moment.

    In the meantime, I am planning to make a quick personal visit to Pollyanna in England this weekend to introduce a new shoe concept and a few other things, and would like to cordially invite any SZ people in the area to come by and visit and say hello. Would be delighted to meet any of you in person and talk some.

    I am informed they are doing some nice things with mince pies this weekend.

    Look forward to seeing you.

    Best wishes,

    Geoffrey B. Small

    Ahem…

    SPECIAL SHOES FROM A SPECIAL PLACE AND TIME

    This very special shoe design helps fight global warming and comes from our most advanced recycle and sustainable research and represents a first in the world breakthrough in footwear design and manufacture. They are made from 100% recycled leather all by hand and developed for us in San Zenone degli Ezzelini near the hill town of Asolo on the border of the provincias of Treviso and Vicenza by a very unique artisan who is a medieval expert in footwear making and modern sport shoe technology.

    Each of the leathers is hand drawn and cut in the original medieval method from our own hand selected vintage recycled Italian leather garments, any variations are of course part of the style and special construction technique. Made from a classic 1950’s sneaker design all with stunningly simple cuts and lines of extreme balance and beauty then combined with a modern updated natural rubber sport sole design for surprising comfort and agility whilst walking.


    I feel that covers just about everything and more, however the certificate that you get when you purchase these amazing shoes goes into even more detail in a way that only Geoffrey could.


    Black High-top version.



    1 of 3 in the world.




    2 of 3 in the world.


    Brown Low version.



    These do come in any colour possible however.

    These shoes are quite cool, but I think the pitch for how to buy them belongs in the affiliate thread. Descriptions of them belong here, but beyond that, I dunno. It seems not quite right.

    the shoes seem nice, i see how they conceptually link to mr small's other work, but am at a loss as to how aesthetically it links.

    I don't know, reading that description (with apparently much more like it on a certificate if you buy the shoes) and then looking at the actual product -- it doesn't add up for me. The description is drawn out and overblown. And the shoes are just not attractive at all in my opinion, especially the low brown ones with the thick white sport sole. I don't see the connection between what the description seems to promise and what the finished product gives you.

    I have to agree with others on here in regards to the footwear.

    The aesthetic of them doesn't fit with all the other pieces that Mr. Small has created for his line. The storyline and leather recycling (or upcycling as is en vogue these days) are very nice as with all of his works but the final product immediately reminds me of Converses/Keds.

    I just can't picture wearing these shoes with the rest of the GBS look and without them being posted on here I would have been very surprised to know that they were GBS pieces.

    perhaps these are not meant to be worn with other G. B. Small pieces? I think these look quite lovely and simple. It's not groundbreaking work but it's not meant to be as with all GBS it's based on a proven shape and design, thought perhaps this one hasn't been quite as forgotton. I can't really imagine wearing a sneaker with any of GBS's peices anyway. I don't mind them but I wouldn't buy them either .

    At least they'd go well with the GBS stuff you see on Yoox like graphic tees and hoodies.

    Huh? I just said there's more to GBS than what you see in this thread. Because people were saying they don't look in line with this other work...

    I don't like sneakers, period - everyone knows this. That does not mean that I will tactlessly slam the work of a designer who contribute to this forum in meaningful ways. And I will tell you right now, openly, for everyone to read - if it comes down between losing someone like Geoffrey because such mindless jabs turn him off from posting or some troll like you, it will be the troll. You, and others like you, have been warned. I won't explain this again.
