The DS3 Racing Shoe by Gio-Gio is a limited edition, with 100 examples being produced, with a number available for sale with an RRP of £120 on Gio-Gio's website and at at a pop-up store in East London.
A collaboration between Citroen and fashion brand Gio-Gio has seen the creation of a limited edition shoe based on the Citroen DS3 Racing.
The high-top shoe, named DS3 Racing Shoe by Gio-Gio, is inspired by the Citroen DS3's high quality materials and specific visual styling, for instance the 18 inch alloy wheels and sporty orange grille. The shoes are finished in the black and orange colour scheme of the Citroen DS3, using a black tumbled full grain leather with a waxy finish. The soft leather lining, foam padded tongue and flexible rubberised sole add to the comfort of the shoe, to flex with the foot when driving.
As found the on the leather seats of the Citroen DS3, the collar of the shoe features a combination of black leather and black mesh, and the sole pattern is a re-interpretation of the curves in the alloy wheels and grid pattern on the front of the car. The lace tips are Gio-Gio branded, available in the choice of two colours.
The DS3 Racing Shoe by Gio-Gio is a limited edition, with 100 examples being produced, with a number available for sale with an RRP of £120 on Gio-Gio's website and at at a pop-up store in East London, open between 13th and 15th September 2011. On 14th September, the store will host a party with performances from some of the hottest music acts.
Adam Ward, Footwear Designer for Gio-Goi said; "It's the perfect partnership - both Gio-Goi and Citroen DS3 Racing are synonymous with the fast pace of urban life. The car's unique lines, with the striking flashes of colour, hi-tech details and luxury comfort, have inspired me to create this stand-out premium shoe design."
Jo Bohling from Gio-Goi added; "The DS3 Racing Shoe by Gio-Goi is for those who like to live life in the fast lane. Inspired by the Citroen's performance and the Gio-Goi attitude, this is a rare opportunity for people to get their hands on a uniquely designed and stylish piece of limited edition footwear."
Mark Lloyd, Chief Designer of Citroen's International Projects, said; "Citroen DS3 Racing was built for performance, style and exclusivity. Gio-Goi has added its signature creativity to produce a perfect compliment to the model with this great footwear design."Published 5 September 2011
