J SHOES’ Impressive Step at NYFW AW 2012-13…

What do you do on a beautiful New York day?  Meet up with Grungy Gentleman and Chunky for an awesome photoshoot of the Grungy Gentleman x J SHOES Colab Boot.

The Grungy Gentleman was perfectly primped by Naoko Hasegawa and then gamely modeled the Andrew 2 Boots.

Chiun-Kai Shih aka Chunky, NY photographer and contributor at Conde Nast, used the Chunky lens he invented for  the addicting smart phone camera app Hipstamatic to achieve the perfect effects.

All in all, quite a productive day ; )

Tommy Ton, illustrious archiver of street style, captured a New Yorker wearing the Mojave boots in the Bark color.  Featured in GQ during a New York fashion week cover.

Located in a remodeled former cigar factory, kick shoes is a gorgeous destination in Downtown La Crosse, WI for the true shoe enthusiast.

A carefully curated collection of mens and womens shoes, choice leather handbags, and intimates span two beautifully appointed floors that incorporate elements of the boutique’s vintage heritage.  Hanging on the back wall of the mens level is a handsome signboard  saved from the heydays of the tobacco company.  And if you look up while you’re trying something on in the dressing room, don’t be surprised to find a little stature smiling serenely back at you.  Just like the unique hand-picked furniture and accouterments around you, every item is picked to be contrary to the ordinary.  Allison and Andrea, the powerhouse co-owners of kick, are proud to say, “We buy shoes for the shoe enthusiast because we are shoe enthusiasts.  Every shoe we buy, is a shoe we would like to own with the quality that we feel everyone deserves.”
