Allen Edmonds just released a sick collection of baseball stitched boat shoes. Handsewn in the Dominican Republic, just like real baseballs.
Igor Vovkovinskiy is 7 feet 8.33 inches tall, wears a size 26 shoe and hasn’t had a pair that properly fit since 2006 when this nice German shoemaker Georg Wessels flew to America and hand delivered three pairs. Apparently Reebok wants $16,000 from Igor to get custom molds made, and being America’s Tallest Man doesn’t really pull in any cash… so Igor has turned to us, the American public to help raise funds to get him some comfort for his feet. But seriously, why hasn’t a shoe company stepped up to equip this man with a pair of sneakers? We all know some of those companies have crazy budgets…
When you become too rich for Wallys, you get these.
