George Cox Collaborates For The Perfect Creeper

January 04, 2011


Not sure if the perfect creeper is as exciting to you as it is to us, but if you've been in love with the bulky, lead foot proportion for as long as we have, it's a great day any time the style is done well. It's not easy— the creeper is an easily maligned shape, a brutish hulk that can seem clownishly oversized if wielded by the wrong hand. But done right, it's the perfect amount of heft and height to give an outfit sartorial concrete and just enough of a sense of humor. George Cox was the originator of the style years ago, and owned its heyday as the shoe of choice for Teddy Boys and then punks, making it as much a part of subcultural British style heritage as the Liberty spike or the safety-pinned shirt. But here, in Cox's collaboration with Japanese retailer I.T., the style's cleaned up and slimmed a bit, Johnny Rotten all grown and bespoke. (via SLAMXHYPE)
