Designer George Sully and sneaker aficionado Henry Wong describe their Toronto-based brand, Sully Wong, as “a North American/Asian culture clash brought to you in a form of a sneaker.” Add to that cross-cultural rumpus the distinctive shapes and jazzy brights favored by Karim Rashid and the result is a sneaker-cum-desert boot that resembles a pair of Keds that stayed too long at the circus. The limited-edition Karim for Sully Wong shoes, which make their official debut at next month’s Magic trade show in Las Vegas and hit stores early next year for $299 per pop pair, will be available in four prints in eight colors, including Rashid’s preferred pink. Pictured here is the Kromo print in “kool blue,” which just happens to be a perfect match for Duchess Kate‘s post-baby Jenny Packham frock.
