Launched during VAMFF last week in Melbourne, Bared Footwear's collaboration with artist Carla McRae is one to slip your tootsies into immediately. The limited edition sneaker collaboration is a first for Victorian footwear label, kicking off the first of many, or so we're told. Suffice to say, these are some sneaks to freak over.

Capturing the carefree spirit of McRae's playful illustrations and street murals, the Pintail shoe brings to life McRae's iconic female character, who appears in many of her works. We're keen to take a walk in these chunky soled shoes with swirling embroidery and metallic details — also apparently imbued with extreme comfort factor. After all, Bared was founded by Victorian podiatrist Anna Baird with the design ethos of creating modern, wearable shoes, so you know these shoes will treat your feet well.

For the collaboration launch, Carla McRae painted one of her cheery, colour-blocked murals out the back of the Bared store in Armadale — the perfect backdrop for these sweet, minimal kicks that come in white with rose gold, and black with silver.

The Carla McCrae x Bared Footwear Pintail shoe is available now for $229 from the Bared website.
