Designed by Marieka Ratsma in cooperation with Kostika Spaho, photography Thomas van Schaik.
The idea for this shoe highlights the aesthetics and the shape of the bird skull, along with the characteristics of the lightweight, and highly-differentiated bone-structure within the cranium.
Such structure requires less support-material, resulting in optimal
efficiency, strength and elegance.
by Marieka Ratsma: At the moment the shoe is still undergoing experimentaion in terms of comfort and durability over long hours of use. Once all of the issues are resolved, it will become available for sale to the public. So keep your eyes peeled!
