Love the Hate Shoes

Nothing goes better with leather and lace than some fresh ink. Oliver Sweeney shoes and celebrity tattoo artist Henry Hate are tying the knot with a limited time offer, for one-of-a-kind footwear. Choose any tan Oliver Sweeny shoe and then Hate (the tattooist of Amy Winehouse, Alexander McQueen, Boy George, and Paul Thompson) will handcraft a design personalized to you. Hate develops the concept for your tattooed shoes from three simple questions: Your favorite location in the world, characteristics that best defines you and person/animal that most inspires you. If this isn’t what you had in mind you can send in a picture, for Hate’s approval, of what you would like to see on your original kicks. “I’m keen to be injecting some fresh attitude, creativity and originality into men’s footwear” Hate says. “Oliver Sweeney shoes are an unexpected, but stunning canvass to deliver my work on.”

Not only will this investment be great for your soles, but it will also please your soul when a donation from each sale goes to The Amy Winehouse Foundation. To get started visit
