Woodwalk by Paul Coudamy

Woodwalk - Designed by Paul Coudamy of art collective Elegangz for footwear brand K-Swiss. This project is a "temporal contraction in which the Swiss country shoe of 19th century is crossed with the urban shoe of the 20th century." Only 25 pairs are available and hand-sculpted in wood. I see it as a remix of how the sneaker (ok they look more like slip-ons to me) interacts with another material which is wood but I bet Nike or Adidas could do a better reinterpretation of such concepts.
