After working for a number of years in the shoe industry, Dutch footwear designer Hester Vleming has finally set out to create her own collection.
Using classic shades of gray, brown and black with hints of red, Vleming's handmade wrapped footwear channels men's shoe designs from the early 1900's. Check out her croissant footwear in the gallery above, which is inspired by felt shoes and gaiter boots.
Implications - Shoes are a must have for people in today's society. Footwear in recent times has really come forward as a way of expressing yourself. Businesses that create unique items that have the ability to match a consumer's personality will be filling the need of consumers who want their purchases to reflect who they are.
