Julian Hakes Creates the Black Widow shoe for the release of Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier

To mark the theatrical release of Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Julian Hakes, the Award-winning footwear designer and architect, has designed a unique ‘star heel’ shoe, drawing inspiration from the characters in the film.

Following the popularity of his Marvel’s Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World shoes earlier this year, Hakes won the prestigious ‘Vogue Accessories Designer’ award, and the Marvel characters continue to inspire his work and influence his designs.

Julian Hakes said, “This latest collaboration with Marvel for Captain America: The Winter Soldier was the perfect opportunity to create a brand new and unique shoe style. I wanted to create a fusion between traditional footwear and the high tech modern world. In Captain America: The Winter Soldier we see Steve Rogers reunited with his S.H.I.E.L.D colleague Natasha Romanoff, the Black Widow. I therefore decided to call this new shoe style the Black Widow edition.  I imagined how Natasha might wear the shoes undercover but then at a moment’s notice she could use them as an effective weapon.”
