now, this is something you don’t see everyday: carbon fiber used in designer brand name shoes, let alone in fashion. traditionally, carbon fiber has been closely associated with automotive (cars, bikes or whatever), so it came as a surprise to find this cutting edge material on a pair of footwear. the Gucci Mocassin sports a beige/ebony GG plus design with dark brown trim, rubber outsoles and of course, carbon fiber on its heels. snazzy stuff. perfect fashion companion to your future Lamborghini sesto elemento, if it ever gets to production. perfetto. the good thing is, this pair of racy shoes are available for purchase for a pricey $425 a pair. then again, it’s just a fraction of the price of your would be supercar. more look after the break.
