The Original Pop Shoe Size 36

The First Real Pop Shoe is a limited edition pair of high-top sneakers by ‘Godfather of pop art’, Sir Peter Blake.

These truly are The First Real Pop Shoe. Made from recycled cheque-book wallet leather, these black and white, Converse-style trainers are finished with Blake’s trademark, colourful symbols, embroidered on both sides. Alongside the heart, target, rainbow and star, the artist’s signature also appears on the side of the trainer and embossed on the back the of the heel.

These trainers were inspired by the pair that Blake himself wears in his infamous, 1961 painting ‘Self-portrait With Badge’s’ which hangs today in Tate Britain as part of the gallery’s permanent collection.

Famed for his pioneering contribution to collage art, and for creating the Beatles’ iconic Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band album artwork, Blake remains one of the world’s most sought-after living artists. Finely crafted, comfortable, and contemporary, these pop art trainers are made by sweat shop free, European labour and come in a Blake-designed box and presentation tin.

With these limited edition pop trainers, now you can slip into Peter Blake’s shoes: don’t miss the art-chance of a lifetime.

    About the artist
    +

    Heralded as the ‘Godfather of Pop Art’, Sir Peter Blake was knighted in 2002 for his invaluable contribution to contemporary art. 

    Blake began his career creating collages from photographs, cigarette packets and matchboxes. This new approach to the creation of visual art – taking found imagery from Pop culture – was spearheaded in Britain by Blake and continues to inspire contemporary artists today. 

    Best known for creating the iconic cover to the Beatles’ 1967 album ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’, Blake continues to produce work that draws extensively on elements from popular cultures around the world.
