Anton Repponen's Persian shoe concept is inspired by cultural and ornate carpet motifs. Persian rugs are visually striking and patterned in their look and are the theme behind this conceptual footwear range.

The collection includes a moccasin-inspired desert boot and a classic oxford shoe that are both adorned with vivid Persian rug prints. Anton Repponen's Persian shoes are striking and are based on the idea of reusing and recycling used floormats.

While the idea may seem far-fetched for some, the growing popularity of tapestry-themed fashions suggests that the shoes would be a hit. Not only would these Persian shoes be vibrant in their look but their carpet materials would also show longevity and durability, two qualities that are always associated with ethnic rugs.
