Upper Echelon Shoes’ Chuck Buckle — As Seen On Gwen Stefani
Even if I didn’t know that pop superstar and fashion maven Gwen Stefani has been stomping around London wearing these Upper Echelon Shoes (UES), I’d most likely look at them and think “I bet Gwen Stefani would rock these shoes.” That’s the beauty of these UES Chuck Buckle shoes — they boast an innate coolness, an undeniable edge.
The gray lambskin leather hi-top shoes feature four thin straps with black buckles running along the front — and, for an added fun twist, the buckles are placed in an alternating pattern, so that one strip’s buckle is placed on the right side, the next on the left, and so on. Each thin buckled strap, in turn, features black pyramid studs of a gritty, punk rock-ish twist. There’s also a buckle along the heel, again accentuated with black studs.
Who wouldn’t feel like winding it up in these shoes?
