Keep reveals the second Animal Collective Collection shoe! »
This is the Guerra hightop designed by Deakin of Animal Collective; it’s the second shoe in their collaboration with Keep shoes. As Meave previously wrote, Keep will donate all the profits from sales of this Collection to the Socorro Island Conservation Fund. SWEET.
My official word: I’m into them. You know I love a hightop but I’m also super into embroidery. Shut up, I am. Deakin was inspired by his scuba-diving:
Telling friends how psyched I was to have seen Blue Fin [sic] Tuna, I also realized that though they have eaten Blue Fin, [most people] have no idea what tuna look like. I thought it would be cool to represent tuna in some way that I thought looked sweet and would want to wear.
That’s true, right? He was prob like, “I saw a bluefin tuna!” and his homies were probably picturing a can of tuna floating along. Maybe some sashimi.
I like these better than the first shoes from the collection; they are more wearable in my opinion. Dark blue, no cartoonish pictures. A little artsy-craftsy. Dope.
