Carol Christian Poell, an Austrian designer who holes up in a studio in
Milan's Naviglio district where he quietly designs an ultra-niche, cult

“Object Dyed, No Seam Drip-Rubber" collection
I WANT THESE SO BAD I COULD TASTE THE RUBBER ...AND LEATHER

Created using calf and kangaroo to produce the sneaker then dying white and dipping in latex, the sole is then achieved by treating with a “Drip-Rubber” application. Poell is known for using rather unconventional materials in past collections such as human hair, bodyplast, metal chain-stitch and blood-dyed leather. - slamxhype.com
