This weekend’s release of Blade Runner 2049 was a little more special for us at Bates Footwear. Ryan Gosling can be seen sporting our Bates Shock throughout the entirety of the film. Writer Jake Woolf over at GQ wrote up a great article about the inspiration and fit of the Bates Shock into the movie. His article is linked below, along with an image of Gosling wearing the Shock in the movie! What a great start to the week for Bates!
“The monochromatic color scheme and mesh paneling give the boots a slightly futuristic vibe, especially when paired with the rest of Gosling’s earth-toned wardrobe. ”
