”She built herself up as if she was a scaffold, while she tried to fill out the big space.” is the title of this shoe. In this design I consider the shoe as an instrument – a tool to straighten up, grow on and become more important.

The shoe has with the wooden heel and the sturdy leather references to a clog, which is used for practical reasons and not because of how it looks. The geometric pattern has references to constructions and scaffolds which can be infinitely big, if you have enough parts. As a visual contrast it has the collar, the gold and the height with references to winners and the divine.

Consider the shoe as a podium from which you can accomplish something big.
