The Taiwanese shoe brand known as WXY is designed by Joi Weng, who describes her line as “usable comfort combined with radical neutral art.” Her inspiration was drawn from the saying by Albert Schweitzer that reads, “Reverence for life.” This motto implies that living a simple life and being thankful for what you have is the most important thing to be mindful of.

Through the use of color she is able to symbolize sentiments; yellow representing power and hope, while pink is sweet and comforting. Her business model also stresses the importance of using materials wisely, as to cut down on waste, which ties back to her motto. Her designs are rather distinctive, with wide zigzagged heels and bold accents. This simplistic yet intriguingly stylish line by Joi Weng is one of a kind.
