Entry Description

This sculptural shoe design, fully made by hand from veg tanned leather was designed to explore the real beauty of the woman's feet that bloom throughout her entire life. The softness of the inner 3D leather element together with the solid leather element surrounding the soft one gives the needed support and comfort to the entire footwear. I used traditional shoemaking to keep it alive with the techniques I developed to enable me to create 3D models overcoming the need for 3D software. It allows me to work with the leather as clay and the goal is to reuse and recycle fully leathe made shoes
