These ‘Knock on Wood’ shoes by Agustina Bottoni push the boundaries of footwear design thanks to their geometric aesthetic and unconventional wood materiality.

This pair of shoes is made from 2mm sheets of lightweight and fragile
tanganika wood. Creating a triangular base structure, designer Agustina Bottoni made sure that this footwear prototype featured an even distribution of weight when worn.

Each hand-crafted shoe design is precisely cut thanks to a concept that relies on complex geometric forms that are later translated into a durable structural frame. While providing stability, this frame also creates a dynamic visual pattern that reinforces an individual’s foot while boasting a unique shape and form never before seen in the world of footwear design.
