The Gum Shoe
Shoes, to me, are another form of art, their structure, story and design all tell a story that I find so fascinating. They are a way for us to express ourselves through fashion. They have been the center of so many cultural movements and continue to reinvent themselves after thousands of years of existing. So teaming up with Brown Shoes made so much sense to me. They allowed me to get creative with these sculptures, creating the illusion that both shoes had stepped in gum, stopping people in their tracks.
These shoes took months of designing, planning and building, resulting in one of a kind sculptures. The sneaker is crafted with hundreds of tiny half inch pieces of string to create the illusion of stitching, while the 'gum' acts as a stabilizer for the shoe.
These may be some of my favourite pieces I have ever created.
