The Shoe Surgeon is the best at taking popular culture and bravely combining it with the world’s hottest silhouettes. And his latest is no different.
The world’s most-famous customiser teams up with TWIX to honour the American chocolate brand’s new 'Cookies & Creme’ flavour. Hidden details, a construction of the highest quality, and a surprisingly alluring colourway all pay homage to sweet inspiration, coming out of the box first in a striking blue corduroy that nods to the candy’s wrapper.
Best of all, its white textile base as well as the accented overlays peel off to reveal an inner treatment influenced by what lies inside the shiny foil, bearing a pebbled black texture at the base near identical to cookie bits with complements adjacent mimicking that of its milky counterpart.
Luxe red tabs then brandish at the tip of the tongue with gold etching that reads 'TWIX' while 'RIGHT TWIX' and 'LEFT TWIX' print onto the outsoles of their respective pairs in further play on the chocolate staple’s deep-seated lore. But that's not all! The box for the TWIX AJ1s is also a sight to behold, featuring a Gold co-branding, multiple laces and even a TWIX bar the shoe is celebrating.
Only 100 pairs were made and were sent to lucky influencers and people in the industry. However, there are rumours that The Shoe Surgeon and TWIX will actually be giving some USA locals a chance of owning a pair sometime in February via online drops and even store releases.
