We mentioned Boxing Kitten’s pattern-crazy bodices and skirts before, but now the brand is coming out with a limited-edition shoe. Designed in collaboration with Osborn, the eco-friendly “Cheeky” shoe (the heel is made from recycled tires) takes the playful tribal patterns of Boxing Kitten and marries them with a summer oxford with open side panels. With only 50 pairs made (and going fast), each shoe is a model in exclusivity, signed by the cobbler that created it.
