Geox shoe designer Ernesto Esposito has long been a connoisseur of the arts, with close ties to the art world that probably provides him with some inspiration of his own when it comes to designing world-class shoes that are both aesthetically and functionally timeless. Which is why it doesn’t come as a surprise that he’s teaming up with fellow artist Raul 33, for an exclusive graffiti art capsule collection to impart some of his artsy knowledge. What does come as a surprise, however, is the joining of forces with Raul 33, who is a relatively young up-and-comer unlike the well-established Andy Warhol artworks that Esposito usually acquaints himself with. But based on what we’ve seen, there’s a reason why Esposito is an expert in his domain. For the set of combat boots and sneakers, Raul 33’s preferred use of symbols, juxtaposed by black-and-white drawings and neon-contrasting laces make for an eye-catching set of kicks that will break through even the darkest of rooms. And don’t think they’re just an aesthetic flex either; they’re just as perfectly suited for your weekend hikes or your post-dinner jog thanks to Geox’s signature breathable and waterproof soles. That way, like Ernesto Esposito, you'll have mastered the best of both worlds – both function and flex.
