This Sneaker Kit Provides the Materials, but Leaves Design Up to the Maker

The ONEDAY sneaker kit gives shoe lovers the chance to make their own sneakers, with endless design possibilities.

ONEDAY was born when founder Roderick Pieters wanted a lightweight pair of summer sneakers, and cut the top off a pair of used leather shoes and sewed it onto a rubber sole. The idea that other people might also like to create unique shoe designs came to him. He started sneaker workshops, and eventually began producing ONEDAY sneaker kits.

The sneaker kits inspire limitless design possibilities. Some examples already created include a deconstructed, completely open boot-like sneaker, a sneaker studded with metal squares and one made out of tie-dyed blue fabric. Even making a pair of shoes using only the materials provided in the sneaker kit gives a range of silhouette options: makers can choose the height of the sneaker, from very high top to very low on the ankle.
