Columbus and Co. had the pleasure of visiting Zen the Fresh Maker of Greenwich Vintage over the past weekend to see how these colored soled shoes everyone is talking about come together. When we finally arrived an hour late to the shop, we were greeted at the door by a friendly Chihuahua named Biggie Smalls. Zen welcomed us into the shop where my eyes immediately gravitated to a large rack of shoes destined for bright colored Greenwich soles.
After an hour or so of the mixture setting up the soles are ready to be taken out of the mold. We were surprised by the short amount of time it took for Zen to get a perfect set of soles completed. As the day went on We realized the extensive process Greenwich goes through to finish a completed set of shoes.
Here is a photo of a finished shoe. The process was truly remarkable to see and I know we couldn’t get every detail into the post, but I hope you enjoyed the photos. Contact Greenwich Vintage directly to get a pair of colored soled shoes. They also take old shoes or boots you have and can refinish them with colored soles. Thanks a lot to the Greenwich team for letting us invade their shop for a day!
