Those of us skipping ahead of the trend have eyes for the new line by UES Shoes (aka Upper Echelon Shoes). Designer Seth Campbell presents the new concept of “shoewelry” – shiny hardware embellishments fused into his hip sneaker sets. Karmaloop excitedly welcomes the collection that’s embraced by celebrities like Ellen Page, Drew Barrymore, Gwen Stefani, and Audrina Patridge. From soft but dangerous studded lo-tops to dripping, detailed, matte chain link hi-tops, UES offers styles perfect for pairing with any look. Wear them on a relaxed night with skinny jeans or with your favorite classy mini-dress for a raw, edgy look. Check out the featured styles on Karmaloop, including the ultra-modish Nise and pony hair Rivington. See below for more pics…
