Paul Smith Women - A 3.5" heel court shoe (pump) designed for classy women who want a bit of a twist in their attire. The medial side has an open waist to show a little more feet. I used my mum's saree for the lining (No, she still doesn't know) and to continue the theme, I used a clear PU with pressed flowers to the inner curve of the Louis heel. True to Paul Smith's form.

Evisu Mens Shoe - Semi formal shoe with a reverse seam toe cap which extends over to the medial side. Lining has printed Japanese artwork which pays homage to it's own heritage.
Split outsole and asymmetric upper also adds to the shoe's interesting appearance.
Please note: This shoe was a pain in the a*s to construct due to the upper wrapping underneath the sole. I had to continually correct my patterns!

Slazenger FusionS - A shoe I designed for Slazenger. They wanted to create a cutting edge shoe which revitalises their brand, therefore I used a dress shoe last to give it a different profile. This shoe has no laces, instead it has a 2.5" elastic strap which wraps over the medial instep. The shoe initially had an interal steel heel clip to keep the achilles section locked in, but I had to pull it out for the final shoe, due to safety concerns. The double lasted upper has an internal EVA midsole.

FINAL PROJECT: Murakami Casual - Yes, this is one of three shoes made for the contemporary man. This shoe is based on Japan and it's more natural side, hence why I used real crepe and rosewood for the sole unit. The fold-over tongue design is connected to the upper (pattern cutting this baby was not easy!) The visual styling cues of the range are present: Medial semi-circular design and the vegtan lace strap.

FINAL PROJECT: Murakami Sport - This is the sport element of the Murakami project. It is a technically aspirated design made for the daily jog rather than looking slick. The biggest feature to note is the aluminium duct on the medial side which channels in air to the foot whilst on the move. There is also an air duct over the lacing area which does likewise (hence the punched holes on the tongue.) The visual styling cues of the range are present: Medial semi-circular design and the vegtan lace strap.

FINAL PROJECT: Murakami Formal - The final shoe in the Murakami series. This formal shoe is sharp and slick with a chiselled toe box. As I modified the last for this shoe, I also increased the toe spring to further enhance the shoe's dynamic form. Unlike a lot of other formal shoes, I only made one lace hole to simplify the upper. The visual styling cues of the range are present: Medial semi-circular leather loop design, air duct over the vamp and the vegtan buckle strap.
