Origami Knight by Horatio Yuxin Han is probably one of the dopest things i’ve seen in a while. Taking the common stress points on the upper, Horatio placed a complex and flexible origami inspired sections into those spaces to allow for greater maneuverability while also introducing some major character to the boot -
‘Origami Knight is a hard boot concept that utilizes the traditional origami technique to allow the hard surface to flex. With the rest of the boot made of molded PVC plastic, the origami sections act as the flex points as well as introduce an intricate visual character into the design of the boot.’ – Horatio
