The Shoefactory Revised: Re-Imagining Footwear Production with Vacuum Technology
In a market of mass consumerism, it’s easy to disregard the impact our production has on the environment. Various steps have been taken over the past couple of years to improve societal awareness of footwear production, with the latest progression coming from Dutch designer Eric Hullegie. Using vacuums to mold the shoe, Hullegie reinterpreted various Camper silhouettes, adjusting small-production techniques for mass creation. The end product is a series of shoes that is less environmentally harmful, yet can still adhere to the standards of everyday wear. A very elegant photo was taken by Sanne Zurne to emphasize and capture the essence of the shoes.
