Geology of Shoes

A beautiful project by London-based footwear designer and maker Barbora Veselá.

Barbora Veselá is London based footwear designer and maker. After graduating from London College of Fashion, Cordwainers collage Barbora applied herself to investigating bespoke shoemaking while developing her own design projects. Her work reflects deep technical knowledge and creative competence. She likes to challenge classic shoe making techniques, yet use them with respect and celebrate its value. Playful and inquisitive thinking brought into old craftsmanship is what makes her work strong and unique.

Project is taking inspiration from sediment layers and from effects of erosive processes in nature as well as from traditional shoe making techniques. Special construction method has been developed and used across the collection. Multiple layers of leather scrap pieces are added on the last and subsequently sanded down to achieve the final shape and unique colour pattern of the shoe. Colour scheme is influenced by old geological maps.
