I love paper and use it often in my work. Using it for the sneakers was another way for me to explore its form and imperfections. Woven fabric has been a visual feature for many traditional running sneakers and I wanted to combine this somewhat common attribute whilst using an unusual material choice – such as paper. I love using gold with white, and this project gave me the opportunity to not only use my favored colour combination but to also explore the contrast between the two textures, matte and gloss together.

At the end of the day I wanted to create something that would be so visually appealing that I would want to put it on display rather than just focusing on its ability to be worn.

materials: paper
this is a one off pair of sneakers available only in size 39

* These sneakers are one-of-a-kind art pieces and not intended to be worn. As they are decorated with very delicate materials, you may find the perfect fit is on your mantelpiece. However, while many are fully functional sneakers those that aren't are not considered to be faulty. Please keep this in mind when placing your bid.

All proceeds of this sale go to kids art therapy school Little Seeds Big Trees.
