Shoes from a parallel Earth

I stumbled on Hybrid Green Label's website just now and was fascinated by the highly original designs of their extensive line of men's shoes.

Their uniquely-patterned rubber soles (below)

are said to be inspired by a fingerprint.

I like them.

I've never heard of this company before and after browsing their selection, I'm afraid nobody ever will: prices range from $79-$89, down from their original $110-$279.

Looks like a fire/going-out-of-business sale.

I'm gonna take a flutter on the Revolution Sneaker pictured above and below, marked down from $229 to $89 with an additional 10% off for giving them my email address, which they probably require anyway somewhere in the ordering process.

If the shoes ever appear IRL at my front door — I'd say there's a 50/50 chance that they will, and that they will resemble what's pictured on the website — I will report further along with a review and photos of Gray Cat making an inspection.

I look forward to hearing about these shoes. Did you say they only do men's shoes?

If the shoes arrive and you don't like them, may I have one? (Will pay shipping, of course.) I'd love to make prints of that sole pattern.

I like to wear unique shoes that aren't completely weird. These looked interesting so I took the plunge and ordered a pair ("The Raleigh”) as well.
