his & hers

Joel and I discovered this line of shoes just before the holidays....I had already gotten him shoes for Christmas but haven't been able to get this company out of my mind since...

their history:

"The first prototype to emerge from the 2005 workshop of musician/designer Michael McCaleb was the simple slip-on shoe they named Ake. The Ake featured basic colors, a sturdy, flexible canvas upper and a purple vulcanized rubber sole. The idea came from McCaleb’s desire to “deal with a collection of issues” he saw with older canvas shoes. He liked the comfort level but found the design too clunky and heavy for fitted jeans."

I see us rocking these while galavanting through Dublin in a few months....
