Sneaker collecting is the acquisition and trading of sneakers as a hobby. It is often manifested by the use and collection of shoes made for particular sports, particularly basketball and skateboarding. A person involved in sneaker collecting is sometimes called a sneakerhead.

Sneakerhead culture

The sneakerhead culture originated in the United States during the late 1980s and had gone global by the end of the 1990s. Hardcore sneaker collectors in Britain, Europe, and the US buy online and go to outlets, sneaker events, swapmeets, parties, and gatherings in search of rare, deadstock, vintage, and limited edition shoes to invest in.

Les mules Aqua

Mules are a convenient but stylish type of shoe. This shoe by Jacquemus has a leather surface. According to their brand description, Each leather is unique and has been carefully selected by their team. Its irregularities and color variations are natural. Then, the wider uppers add comfort again, even though they are fatter. As always, the brand has taken the special approach of embossing the logo on the insole to highlight the brand name. The higher heel also elongates the leg line to a certain extent. Therefore, this pair of shoes can be matched with skirts or pants or other types of clothes.

With its unique design aesthetic, JW Aderson creates thought-provoking silhouettes that offer a modern interpretation of masculinity and femininity by deliberately cross-pollination between menswear and womenswear elements. This unique perspective has earned the brand a following.

WOMEN’S CHAIN LINK HIGH HEEL SANDAL

First of all, the most striking thing about this pair of high-heeled sandals must be the heel. Unique profiled high heels are very different from traditional heels. Although the heel looks like a “circle”, the bottom of the heel has a certain footprint, and it can even be said that it is more stable than the traditional straight design. The rope on the surface also decorates the instep of the wearer, making it delicate and elegant. And this shoe comes in several colors, which means that people can choose the right match according to their own occasions.

Something about crocodile leather

If your fashion style leans towards a tough, cool and a little dangerous style, crocodile leather is an element you should add to your wardrobe.

Crocodile leather: tougher than you think

In fact, this is a myth: this leather is, in fact, one of the most durable leathers used in menswear today.

The skin of these creatures has scales of varying sizes: the flank scales are oval and the stomach scales are small and rectangular.

It is difficult to work with this type of leather: the scales themselves are rigid. This makes it difficult to finish the leather in the tanning process and therefore contributes to the higher costs of products made from crocodile skin.

These skins also have an additional bone layer. While this increases durability, it prevents the leather from stretching significantly, making work more difficult.

Crocodile is versatile.

If you’re thinking of an item to add to your wardrobe, a crocodile belt packs a big punch. You can select from a wide variety of styles depending on where the animal’s fur is. There is a different appearance associated with the belly scales (smaller, smoother texture) compared to the backbone (larger, more dramatic scale patterns).

There is also a wide range of colors available: you can choose from more conservative colors in black and brown, natural tones and bright color tones ranging from red to blue and everything in between.

There are many products besides belts and wallets that look great on exotic skins like crocodile. Cell phone cases, watch straps and sunglasses cases look amazing in crocodile.

For a more dramatic statement, a crocodile leather coat or jacket will definitely do the trick. Remember, however, that a little croc can go a long way.

Don’t be fooled by fakes.


Many people go for the look of exotic leathers but are put off by the exorbitant prices. They are often tried by vendors who offer variations on real crocodile leather.

You will find that many products are offered that look like crocodiles but are actually made from the skin of other members of the Crocodilian family, such as alligators.

Alligators are small relatives of crocodiles and are sometimes called the “Colombian crocodile”. They are cultivated and cultivated for their fur, similar to ostriches. This makes their skins less expensive than alligators or crocodiles.

Generally, alligator skins are less coveted for use in fashion because they are drier, duller and less soft to the touch. The scales are also smaller, in addition to having marks and appearing concave.

Items made with alligator leather are significantly cheaper than crocodile leather, but the quality and aesthetics are simply not as high as crocodile.

What is PU leather?

Learn how it is produced and what PU leather is, which is actually just a synthetic fabric made from plastic.

PU is the acronym for polyurethane. It is a solid material, very flexible, resistant to oxidation and chemical additives, with a texture very similar to foam.

What is PU leather?images

In winter and upholstery products, PU is usually the laminated layer of fabric that, in appearance, is very similar to leather. It is also present in the manufacture of paints and other fibers.

Therefore, products made from “pu leather” are not composed of leather exactly. But of a synthetic material made from plastic (petroleum) and other substances, such as castor oil. Despite this, many people confuse synthetic fabric with leather.

The matter is so serious and important that in December 1965 the Leather Law was created (n° 4,888/65), which prohibits the sale or advertisement of products under the name of leather, but which are not obtained exclusively from animal skin. and makes this act a crime subject to punishment by the penal code.

What are the materials for making shoes?

In today’s article I will show you a complete list of raw materials to manufacture shoes.

What are the materials for making shoes?images

Animal leather and synthetic leather


This is, without a doubt, the main raw material for finishing and structuring shoes. In addition to the types of leather, you can also invest in suede. It all depends on the style and occasion for which the shoes are being made.

Latex rubber


Latex rubber can be used in different parts of shoes. And she’s usually pretty tough.

Polymers


Polymers are nothing more than the kinds of plastics and foams that are used in shoes. You must stipulate a quantity of polymer for each option you choose, and thus, promote comfort and lightness for your customers.

Fabrics for shoes


Fabrics are also part of the shoe’s finish. But of course they also have the important function of covering internally and externally, in different parts. Therefore, you should bet on more resistant and “thick” fabrics, so that they do not wear out too quickly.

Lines and glues


The threads and glues need to be special for shoes, since only in this way will you be able to have a firm finish. Otherwise, when walking, the thread may unravel easily, compromising the quality of the shoe.

Shoe laces and cords


The shoelaces and laces can have both the function of “closing” the shoe, as well as promoting aesthetic results. In fact, it is possible to unite the only two functions. Lace thickness, size and colors will vary depending on shoe style. It will be up to you to choose the most suitable type for each piece you create.

Insoles


Finally, we cannot forget about the insoles that will provide the entire inner lining on the soles of the feet. They are the ones that generate more comfort and well-being when walking, in addition to “holding” dirt, making it easier to clean shoes later on.
