Julian Hakes Mojito Sandals

Julian Hakes is an architect who took inspiration from a twist of lime peel in a Mojito cocktail and the "Hakes Mojito" sandal was born. Carrie in SATC would have gone crazy for them if these sandals would have been created at the time of the successful TV series. The shoes are light, bursting with colour and despite their funny shape, they are very comfortable, because the curves of the sandals follow the curves of the feet.
They are absolutely gorgeous, I can't find any other word to describe them. The choice of colours is not for the faint hearted ones with fluo hues and contrast matches. These shoes have been seen during London Fashion Week at the Ada Zanditon show and Ann Sofie Back.
These pair of silver and orange sandals are my favourite because I love orange. Actually I think that a pair of Hakes Mojito in purple and orange would be only the most beautiful pair ever, maybe because I love these two colours and I wear them at any occasion.
This model is with a matt finish in two fantastic and contrasting colours: lime and fuchsia. With a pair of shoes like this you don't have even the problem where to store them. You just leave them out on a shelf like a sculpture. They are really a small work of art and I think that they should be displayed at the V&A in the fashion section.
For the release of the film "Thor: The Dark World" , Julian Hakes has manufactured a pair of shoes inspired by Thor as if it was made in Asgard. Julian Hakes hand carved his Mojito Sandal imagining Thor carving the shoes from a block of solid titanium or rock. For this pair of shoes it has been chosen a very dark combination of colours like dark grey and red. It reminds me of a block of molten lava.
