Introducing the Aaron Rose Mid – the second installment of the DC Shoes Artist Projects collaboration with influential artist Aaron Rose. Roses Artist Projects shoes are inspired from his life’s influences and from the mod culture he discovered in his early teens. A key element of the mod aesthetic was the ‘60s desert boot inspired shoe that was re-contextualized through modern culture. Design inspirations for the simple suede mid top shoe stem from the desert boot style that was popular with bands throughout the ’60s. The DC Shoes x Aaron Rose Mid is available in classic black and wheat colorways with the inner interior lined with plaid fabric. The sneakers also feature custom designed gum soles, and a repeating teardrop pattern with a single clear teardrop exposing a cork interior. The shoes are packaged in a custom shoe bag, along with a mini ‘zine and Aaron Rose designed box.
The Rose Artist Projects shoes are available now in exclusive sneaker boutiques worldwide. Hit the jump for more pictures.
