Mastering skills is not easy, especially when one is a young upstart shoe salesman. But a true prodigy can emerge with a little coaching and lots of practice, and a young lad can turn into a unique and celebrated shoe designer. Inspired by a shoe drawing John did in his early 20s recently found in his mother's attic, John has created a simple and versatile slingback with a gorgeous silhouette. Handcrafted in Peru, The Prodigy features leather soles and a leather wrapped 3.25" heel, with an x-shaped leather interlace for accentuation on two youthful leathers: a cool, grey glossy patent leather, and a floral pattern printed on dry leather giving the slingback a time-faded feel harking back to the Fox & Fluevog days.
