As was seen with the Christian Louboutin “Louis” sneakers, metal studs appear to be the hot new added feature to designer kicks for the upcoming spring collection. Coming fresh from Japan, the ato Cow Hide Boots come in a nice, subtle, mate-like black leather colourway and of course the aforementioned metal studs. However, compared to the Christian Louboutin sneaker these shoes actually look subtle, that they are almost tasteful. In fact the longer I look at them, the more infatuated I am becoming. The ato sneakers is available from Japanese boutique Rowgage.
