Roderick Pieters X Proef
I present to you the most easy to assemble pair of shoes you have ever come across by Japanese designer Roderick Pieters. The Loper Shoe launched through Kickstarter in collaboration with designer brand Proef last month and its sole purpose for design was to eradicate the production process by allowing the end user to assemble the shoe themselves without the use of any glue and with the help of their step by step video guide. The product as you can imagine has all the inner workings of Japanese design, simplistic yet full of character. The soles can come in a variety of colour and each shoe is made up from a plastic sole and leather insoles and uppers with the option to repair them if needs be. The design work is exceptional, the thought process has been extremely thorough to bring you a new way of thinking about footwear, construction and ultimately production.
