Punk Subversion: George Cox Meets Comme des Garçons

There are few brands as embedded in punk history as George Cox, the footwear brand responsible for the iconic brothel creeper. Founded over a century ago, its legacy is embedded within both British fashion and manufacturing history, worn by the Sex Pistols and teddy boys, as well as the brand itself acting as a stalwart of the Northamptonshire footwear trade. Now, through a Comme des Garçons Homme Plus footwear collaboration comprising two styles of black leather creepers, it is being celebrated anew. Here, we tour the factory enlisted by third-generation member of the George Cox family, Adam Waterfield, to create the shoes: a space where the Japanese avant-garde and British craftsmanship unite. via AnotherMag
