Papercraft Sneakers by Oupas Design

Portuguese based design agency, Oupas Design was tasked to create plain, papercraft sneakers to showcase The Laces Company vibrant shoe laces.

I think it goes without saying that these things are impressive, and I’m for some reason always pretty fascinated with these types of projects. I just find the level of ingenuity and the complex shapes that can be achieved through the simple act of cutting and folding paper is pretty amazing.

It would be interesting to see if there may be ways of incorporating this papercrafting technique into different materials that could be applied to functional footwear.
