Nendo has taken on the redesigning of a series of camper shoes, but adds its own special twist on it. Originally designed by Camper's, the 'Beetle' shoe is an adaptation of the popular Peu Ideal shoe, but the new one appears to be lighter and more water resistant.

Nendo decided it wanted to work with Camper's iconic stretchable shoelaces so they naturally became the basis for the design. Nendo's Oki Sato already created spaces for the brand so actually designing a shoe for it seemed fit.

Instead of keeping the laces strictly on top where laces generally go, Nendo incorporated the laces into the actual shoes and made them part of the design. The laces are woven into the upper part of the shoe helping to provide comfort and an awesome pattern.
