Every week a different FADER family member will pick a clothing item or accessory that he or she has lately been spending a lot of time with—or would like to—and write a little love letter to it. This week photographer and all around bon vivant Sandy Kim hoped to talk about the makings of a perfect boot, no easy task since a love of clothing is often more complicated and instinctual than old fashioned prose allows. Today's reality is that true love often needs emoticons, brbs, and hahas to capture its complexity, so we decided to let Sandy describe her brand new Native Shoes in the most liberated way possible, on iChat with FADER Editor Matthew Schnipper. The shot above and the one after the jump are by Kim herself, photo odes to her favorite new pair of shoes.
