Protect your feet from a spray of bullets

From bullet-proof suits to bullet-proof shoes, well almost

by 03 April 2014

You may remember our recent article about a a bullet-proof suit named the Diamond Armor, supposedly the most expensive men’s suit in the world. And since bullet-proof apparel seems to be in vogue, thanks to a partnership between Over All Master Cloth (O.M.A.C) and renowned french shoe maker Atelier Heschung, a special pair of shoes, that can protect your feet from a spray of bullets, is now on the market.

The S/S 2014 collection, named the Radial Low Kevlar shoe, features a lightweight kevlar upper construction, which is a material normally used for making body armour and other bullet-resistant equipment.

The Kevlar shoes are hand-sewn at each stage of production and feature supple calf leather accents along the collar and heel.

The brand recently conducted a ‘field test’, which was performed and recorded on location at the Arcadia Police Department Gun Range in California, where the shoes were fully tested for durability, construction and functionality. Check out the video here to see the point where the shoes bounce off the bullets, well almost!
