Footwear is getting down to the art and sole of it all with a myriad styles portraying the ongoing graffiti trend. Shoes featuring word prints, illustrations and other graffiti-inspired art were prominent on the streets at the latest edition of London Fashion Week Men’s, including slip-ons, sneakers and even custom kicks. A variety of women’s options have also sprung up, ranging from loafers to kitten-heel pumps to spiked stilettos.
Below, FN rounds up five of the best crafty shoes to shop the look now.
