Lasso shoes…

London, UK

Royal College of Art graduate Gaspard Tiné-Berès has designed slippers made from just one piece of felt and a shoelace. “The shapes are die-cut from sheets of 5mm thick felt with minimal, simple and affordable tooling – making this product very suitable for small-scale local production. The slippers are delivered flat-packed and come with coloured laces that the user has to thread along the seam, which curls around the edge of the sole and over one side of the upper. The act of self-assembling the slippers increases the sense of ownership and emotional connection with them and allows for personalisation through the choice of laces used.”
