We reached out to Show about his Bespokes this is what he had to say.:
“Izzy from Mercer let me know a cork materials came in for Bespoke. My girl (Lisa Marie) knew I used to I.D. Air Force sneakers all the time & she set me up with the appointment. As soon as I went in I knew I wanted all cork with hints of burgundy for a wine inspired sneaker. I had him leave the tongue & heel tab blank because I planned to have it lasered with a pic wine opener which never happened.”
This was the first Cork Bespoke made in the U.S. back in 2010… A complete Natural Cork upper with burgundy wine inspired tongue tab, heeltab and Outsole. Burgundy stitching around the entire upper along with the midsole hold this whole shoe together.
