Chinese Tian-Ling worker shoes remade as fashion plimsolls

Ospop has taken the classic Chinese Tian-Lang worker-sneaker, a handsome, highly evolved little plimsoll, and reworked it, adding insoles, designer colors, eyelets, improved laces — and sweat-free labor practices — to produce a high-fashion export version. I bought a pair last week in dark green and I’ve been wearing them around, and I’ve found them surprisingly comfy and exceptionally handsome. The tennies arrive wrapped in paper designed by noted calligrapher Zhao Zhi Gang. The company is also running an educational charity for development in the area around its factory. Link
