Louie Gong’s Custom Shoes for the Lunar New Year

by cubiclejot on February 3, 2011

How would you like to hop around in a pair of these in the lunar new year?  Louie Gong does it again with this beautiful custom shoe created in celebration of the year of the rabbit. 

Louie Gong is a custom shoe artist and activist whose art explores themes of racial identity.  His work has been featured in numerous media, including the 2010 Winter Olympics and a documentary film called “UNRESERVED: the work of Louie Gong,” which was selected to Festival de Cannes earlier this year.
