Knock on Wood Shoes: Footwear from the Future

by Range

There are plenty of wooden galoshes and slippers around, which means that wood can be used to make useful shoes. The thing about woodens is that they always tend to look quite old-fashioned. On the other hand, these wooden shoes don’t look like any I’ve ever seen. You could probably wear these on the grid in TRON and not skip a beat.

The Knock on Wood shoes were designed by Agustina Bottoni, and made out of 2mm sheets of tanganika wood. Each of the pieces used in this design are meticulously handcrafted. The overall structure is supposed to follow the natural distribution of weight in feet, and manages to support a person’s weight using a limited amount of material. There are more pieces where the heel and the metatarsus are supported.

Each module was cut with precision, so that the direction of the lines in the wood converge in a visually appealing pattern. I’m not sure how comfortable they are, but they definitely look interesting.
