They say you can’t really know a man until you walk a mile in his shoes. Well how about walking to Big Ben in a pair of Elton John’s? Trying not to trip en route to Covent Garden in Naomi Campbell’s? To St Paul’s Cathedral in Boy George’s? The Imperial War Museum in Kate Moss’? Or maybe to London Bridge in stylist William Baker’s?
All these places are a mile away from the Oxo Tower Wharf where Platform 6 are exhibiting a collection of Adidas Stan Smith trainers customised by an array of stars.
You can view their individual takes on the classic Stan Smith silhouette from Sept 7-14 and bid online to own a piece of foot art (or ‘fart’, if hilarious portmanteaus are your thing). All profits go to Stonewall. Jude Brosnan
