With all the exciting things going on at this week’s Project tradeshow in NY, we were still making time to prowl for new, eye-catching product. We had the opportunity to chat with Javier Laval of Android Homme, an LA-based footwear brand. We’ve seen the label get some respectable coverage on various publications, online and off, but we hadn’t really gotten the opportunity to see what the brand was about. After speaking with Javier and getting a peek at what they’re delivering as part of their Holiday 2013 collection, we were beyond impressed. Though we can see some of the pieces be too eclectic for some of you guys out there, it’s important to focus on the attention to detail that goes into every single pair. We’re talking black/red pony hair mocs and python skin high-top sneakers.
Beyond the unparalleled level of creativity that’s being utilized by the Android Homme team, there’s also a high level of innovation. Some of the sneakers in their latest lineup feature an EVA sole that’s as light as a feather, which gives us a shoe that weights next to nothing. Android Homme continues to live in the future and it shows in the final product. We took some shots of our favorite styles below, so be sure to check them out below.

What we dig the most? Del Toro‘s cap toe shoes with some vibrant detailing as well as their double monks featuring camo uppers. Game. Over.
