This is not the first time Shoes 53045 have caught our attention at SF HQ. If you think their previous effort was wild, catch an eyeful of the Easy Rid’Air! One-part cowboy boot, and one-part bubble-bottomed sneaker, it’s the label’s homage to acclaimed 1969 film, Easy Rider (hence the name).
There is a lot going on here, so let’s break it down bit by bit. Despite its suede-like upper, the Easy Rid’Air is a vegan shoe as it’s free from animal products. Quick access is granted into its shin-hugging cut via a medial ankle zipper, while spiky ankle joint straps provide extra lockdown. Thankfully, this additional hardware is removable via a slot and pin fixture, creating a clean look.
Add a double-stacked full-length air (not Air) sole and it’s a crazy pair of shoes – for the princely sum of $500. Available direct from Shoes 53045.
