David Bowie Photographer Slips on Shoe Deal with TheCollaboratory

Mick Rock is printing his David Bowie images on shoes with TheCollaboratory.

Mick Rock, a photographer known for his photos of David Bowie, has teamed with TheCollaboratory to create slip-on sneakers featuring those images, according to

The e-commerce platform has produced a series of slip-on sneakers that show off Rock’s snaps of Bowie from his “Ziggy Stardust” era and beyond. There are four styles, each named after one of Bowie’s songs.

All four designs are screen-printed on to canvas uppers on low-top slip-ons that feature padded collars and elastic side accents.

“The shoes [are] something we have been discussing for years,” says Scott Fishkind, chief collaboration officer, TheCollaboratory. “His work translates to fashion so well, and his subjects are iconic giants that we’ve all grown up with and have an emotional connection to.”

A portion of the proceeds from the limited-edition collection will go to various non-profits like the COVID-19 Solidarity response for the WHO, the NAACP, Campaign Zero and NYC’s COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund.

Each pair retails for $145 and is available here.
