A walk in the woods, reconnecting with nature while keeping a metropolitan outlook on life. The two things are not mutually exclusive for us: being the denizens of a fast-paced world can still happen feeling and living the pace of mother nature. Walking along a self-chosen path, away from conventions and impositions, between the trees, a leaf gets stuck on the side of a shoe. As the walk continues going back to the city, the leaf turns into gold. What looked like soil, or detritus, sublimates into a sign of unicity and preciousness, just as a natural element becomes a metropolitan sign of belonging. With Hi Star, we suggest to take another look at things and find a new perspective on what is given.

We have brought our idea of uniqueness to new heights. We have created a new shape and elevated our love for perfect imperfection. We apply real 24-carat gold leaf on the right shoe of each pair. We do it by hand, and this makes no shoe identical to the other. Not a single one.

The branding is handwritten, on the top of the sole, all around the shoes. We have blown up the sole, starting from Superstar. A higher sole to bring you higher. 5cm, to be precise. There is nothing more intensely human than being one of a kind, for us. It’s the luxury of being yourself, brought to new heights.

We have created only one, very limited run of Hi Star featuring the 24-carat gold leaf. Exclusively available at GGDB/HI STAR Seoul’s popup store — 27, Apgujeong-Ro 12-Gil, Gangnam-gu — from Feb 9 to Feb 24, 2018. Available worldwide online and in our Flagship Stores from Feb 23. Being unrepeatable is the true meaning of uniqueness.
