Design student, Nic Der managed to combine new technology with traditional techniques to create his super clean, handsewn laser derby boot.
‘Inspired by traditional brogues, these derbies combine new technology with old techniques. The cut outs were laser cut and the entire uppers were sewn, lasted, and finished by hand.’ – Nic
Modern technology affords us a plethora of exciting opportunities. Combining old school techniques and modern technology can be tricky as the integrity of the traditional aspects are often tainted somewhat. When handled correctly however, and the traditional aspects remain intact, it can really create some extremely compelling results.
Case & point, these handsewn laser derby boots. Check out Nic’s beautiful work, below.
