When the lines between two things are blurred the results can be interesting, which is about the nicest way possible to describe Boy George. For kicks transitioning your feet from Boy to
George man, snag some Pointer shoes.
From a team dedicated to making shoes for "everyday life" in response to a market saturated with high-tech sneakers, Pointer eschews Asian production for more artisanal crafting in Portugal to create hybrid boot/ sneaker/ boat shoes, and claims to be inspired by "everything from art and music to skateboarding and breakfast" -- so they obviously ate their Kix. The European leather-heavy collection's got quite a few mid-rise numbers, like the Benson, a docksider/ light boot in textured leather; the Mathieson, with basketball sneaker stitching and boat shoe lowers; and the Barajas Mid II, which looks like a suede moccasin up top, and gets a leather lower third inspired by court kicks -- but not punches, cause no one wants their shoes to look like Ron Artest. Lowtop lovers can nab the Tanju, basically a loafer with more rustic, moccasin-ish hand stitching and a white boat shoe sole, or the Hopkins: kind of a beefed up docksider with a thick sneaker sole and uppers in a dark blue color they call peacoat, although according to the area beneath your toilet seat, that's actually a really gross yellow.
They've also got a pair of rugged-ass, full-on boots called the Calums, boasting lug soles, soft leather inside, and hook eyelets, plus the Soma II, a minimalist high top sneaker that's a little more predictable than the rest -- also something you should say about Boy George, if you really want to hurt him. If you really want to make him cry.
