The latest in this year’s series of wings+horns 10th anniversary projects is the premium suede ‘Desert Creeper’ boot, handmade by legendary British shoemaking company George Cox. True to their reputations for craftsmanship and innovation, the Desert Creeper combines wings+horns’ signature 4-needle stitching with George Cox’s famous woven Creeper toe.
George Hamilton Cox introduced the first Creeper in 1949, and the construction of the wings+horns x George Cox Desert Creeper is as timeless as its design. Featuring Goodyear welting, a natural crepe sole and a custom co-branded insole, each pair of boots is authentically handcrafted in Northhamptonshire, England, where George Cox was established in 1906.
Thank you to everyone who came out to the showroom and made the launch of the ken diamond x wings+horns moccasins such a success.
To commemorate the 10th anniversary of wings+horns, Vancouver-based leather craftsman Ken Diamond has created two custom interpretations of his signature hand-stitched moccasins.
The Ken Diamond x wings+horns collaboration consists of the Thomme and the Koko, two styles handcrafted from black Horween Chromexcel leather. Born from a shared design philosophy founded on quality and integrity, each pair of moccasins is carefully finished with a cushioned veggie tan insole, a durable veggie tan midsole, and Vibram rubber outsole.
Ken Diamond x wings+horns will be available for purchase Friday, June 13th at 10am EST.

The second project in the wings+horns 10th anniversary series is a collaboration with Vancouver’s Lattimer Gallery and local Cree artist Justin Rivard. A carver and trained jeweller, Rivard created 10 custom sterling silver cuff bracelets featuring a wings+horns ‘+’ between two Ravens with outstretched wings, and “wings+horns” carved in script on the reverse.
Often seen soaring above the forest in the Coast Mountains surrounding Vancouver, the Raven is one of the most important figures in Northwest Coast art and mythology. Recognized for his knowledge, the Raven has the ability to transform himself and other beings, and appears in many legends as intelligent, innovative and creative.
The wings+horns x Lattimer Gallery x Justin Rivard cuff bracelet is made of oxidized sterling silver with a matte finish and measures 3/8” x 6”. Each hand-carved piece is numbered and signed by the artist, and is available in an edition of 10 exclusively at the wings+horns retail showroom in Vancouver and on wingsandhorns.com.
