Handmade Shoes: Grapejuice | Austin Scott

Always a big fan of people getting their hands dirty and creating their own samples. Austin Scott did just that, and used some very interesting materials and development processes while doing it. Using cork at the back section of the midsole, and building the upper that could only be taken off of the last when the eye row section was cut out –

I made the entire shoe on the last without a way to get the last out of it. The final step was cutting a slot into the top of the shoe, taking out the last, and lacing them up. – Austin

Another beautiful example of the story behind the development of the sample enabling a fuller appreciation to it’s final aesthetic.
