Astor Flyers 1

The Astor Flyers 2009 were designed with a minimalistic sole, but are paired with an interesting metallic bend and heavy-duty foot strap. Ribbed tongue and panels give these high-tops a slightly more moon-walkerish appearance. Quilted textile/nubuck uppers feature leather-laced and hooked closures, and you should consider buying two pairs if you want that white sole to stick around. It’s going to be hard to pry these off your feet. [via culture shoq]
