Pure Gagosian special edition
2014 - shoes - RUCO LINE
PURE are sneakers made from very high-quality calf leather. They are the result of a search for the utmost purity, inspired by the shoe last used in shoe making.
The shoe is highly innovative and made from a single piece of leather, covering a flexible structure in a way that avoids the need for zips.
Lastly, a discreet graphic element indicates the serial number of the shoe, the creator and date of production, making each pair unique.
PURE is available in black, white, fluorescent yellow and hot pink to start with and will be completed by a summer version.
In this special numbered edition made for the Gagosian Gallery and limited to 300 pairs, the shoe adopts a mirror-finish silver skin.
I sought to radicalize the subject matter and achieve a form that was essentially a foot wrapped in the purest, simplest and most straightforward way possible.
