-- The Story of The Joplin --
A tribute to Janis Joplin
The Joplin derby leather shoe is a Kinamania tribute to Janis Joplin : the premier white female blues vocalist of the 1960s. Joplin was a trailblazer in the male-dominated world of rock music. Her style and persona were just as influential as her music, and she helped to define a generation.
Try, try, try just a little bit harder So I can love, love, love him, I tell myself 'Cause I'm gonna try, oh yeah, just a little bit harder So I won't lose, lose, lose him to nobody else, yeah Hey, I don't care how long it's gonna take ya But if it's a dream I don't want No I don't really want it Yeah if it's a dream I don't want nobody to wake me
Initially designed for sporting & hunting in Great Britain, the Derby shoe became a gentleman’s footwear in the 20th century.
"I very much enjoyed crafting this derby shoe. The details of the pleats, the sole en-décalé, the V shaped pattern at ankle level and of course the typical Kinamania hand-stitches. The mix, I find, is beautifully balanced." Kristina
