Art Force One Sneakers

Manu Angot has become pretty well known in recent years for his Manu Customs. Specializing in hand-painted designs on everything from shoes to electronics, Manu has created quite a name for himself with his brand Art Force One.

On our recent trip to Paris, we discovered that there was more to Manu than Nikes and Reeboks. Walking into Aimecube in the 1st Arrondisement, we were immediately drawn to a row of beautifully bright-colored sneakers embellished with iconic graphics.

But these were no big, padded sport shoes, these were the most simple narrow leather shoes we had ever laid our eyes on. In colors including yellow, teal, and burgundy, and covered with fresh graphics of everything from sunglasses to screwdrivers, the shoes strike a perfect balance between classic Keds-like style and funky flare.

Prices are in the range of €200, but outside of Aimecube we don't have any info on where you can get your hands on a pair.
