I love seeing adelaides reinvented. And it is occurring more and more as adelaides gain more and more popularity in the shoe industry. Now, if you are a shoe brand and you dont have an adelaide oxford on offer you are missing a trick whereas 10 years ago, it would have been normal to not have one in the collection. Times have changed. And thankfully so.
@thatguysshoes of Instagram has recently commissioned one of the more unique adelaide designs of recent times, by Antonio Meccariello. Now, of course, this wont be to everyone’s liking but at least it displays what one can do when their mind does not have limits. And for me that is great to see. Because one man’s vision can be the next man’s dream but sometimes we need help realizing that dream. You would not believe how many MTOs I make that are just copies of another customer’s idea. Case in point. So its nice to see that this good gentleman realized his vision which I am sure will inspire others to order too!
And so begins the journey of new designs in shoe industry, one order at a time. Now lets see how it unfolds. And well done to makers like Meccariello who are willing to push the boundaries of design. Thats what makes our industry great!
Wishing everyone health, happiness and positivity
