The Tribute shoe by Nendo is a one of a kind shoe in an industry full of one of a kind shoes. The shoes are a redesign of the best-selling classic design by the same company with some choice additions and changes.
Innovating shoes is something that is extremely difficult to do. Treading the line between form, function, style and flash is a hard line to tread but the Tribute shoe does that. The shoe is a revisit to the original Beetle shoe by the same company, but with some visual and functional tweaks.
The areas that would be typically be used for laces are instead used as a weaved pattern of elastic straps. The shoes are more water-resistant as well as being a fresh upgrade to the original design.
