Julian Hakes 'Mojito' Shoes for Gwyneth Paltrow's Character in Marvel's 'Iron Man 3'! Xx



Sparkle Style are loving the Julian Hakes 'Mojito' Shoes
specially designed for Pepper Potts in Iron Man 3


Julian has applied his futuristic and innovative approach 
to shoe design with the following question in mind 
If Tony Stark himself were to design a pair of shoes for Pepper Potts, 
what would they look like?  


This exclusive ‘Mojito’ shoe is in the same colours as Iron Man's Classic
red and chrome suit and fitted with an LED light, 
resembling the ‘ARC-reactor’ that powers it.


“Because of my design and engineering background, 
I’ve always been fascinated by Tony Stark in 
Marvel’s Iron Man comic books and films. 
The ‘Mojito’ shoe is a result of an architectural driven process,” said Julian Hakes. 
“After realising that only the heel and ball 
of the feet require support to maximise comfort, 
I created many different prototypes before arriving at the ‘Mojito’ design
 - perhaps even rivalling the number of suits created by Tony Stark!”

Gwyneth Paltrow, who plays Pepper Potts in Marvel’s Iron Man 3
is no stranger to Julian Hakes’ work. 
The movie star donated a signed white pair of Hakes’ 
‘Mojito’ shoes to help raise money for ‘Stand Up For Cancer UK’ last year.


“This collaboration with Julian Hakes is fashion-forward, 
innovative and really breaks the mould. 
This unique pair of shoes has done Tony Stark proud!”, 
said David Lee, Footwear Director for The Walt Disney Company EMEA.

Hakes’ debut shoe collections have been 
widely recognised across the globe. 
His ‘Mojito’ shoe won the prestigious Drapers 
Footwear and Accessories award in 2012.
