Certainly one of the best and most creative pair of shoes of the year was made from woven kente silk as part of a collaboration between Dr. Martens and A. Sauvage. Now the two partners have teamed up for a beautifully art-directed new video to celebrate the commercial release. Designer Adrien Sauvage is known for casting a bevy of notable dudes around London as his label's ambassadors (like silver fox television host and the brand's muse George Lamb), and this time he's got the young Submarine star Craig Roberts to act in a short called This Is Not A Suit that also showcases the other three pairs of Docs that came out of the collaboration. Check out the video above, the shoes below, and head over to Dr. Martens' site to buy a pair.
