The AW11 Capriole shoe. The heel was made of several layers of glass/carbonfiber to make the extreme shape possible.

The SS12 Fang shoe. The whole outsole was CNCed in ABS, fitted to the bootie, cast in a silicone vacuum mold. A very complex but rewarding project.

The AW12 Thorn shoe. The upper for this shoe is a 1-piece silicone part, made possible with a silicone vacuum mold. The platform, ABS heel and midsole are glued in after, making for a very production efficient shoe.

Iris van Herpen x United Nude

I have been very involved with the shoes United Nude makes for Iris van Herpen's fashion shows. Responsibilities include translating Iris's sketches to a feasible design, creating CAD models and partly overseeing the small production run. Turnaround is usually about 3 months.

  • Cool work. They actually make me nervous that the wearer will fall, but the fact this design spurs my reaction is good.
