Designer, Sam Whitworth created both a bag and a shoe for his VESSEL project.
“This project centered around the relationship between the two major softgood product categories; shoes and bags. Just as we put our personal items in bags to carry around, we put ourselves in shoes, which carry us around throughout the day. These shoes therefore borrow some of the functionality of bags through their use of ladderlocks, webbing and zippers, while the accompanying backpack borrows some of the functionality of shoes, namely using a rubber sole to give durablity and waterproofing to the area of the bag which tends to takes the most abuse.” – Sam
A super sleek looking bag & shoe, which feature rubber cupsoles, neoprene, leather, YKK Aquaguard zippers, webbing and anodized black ladder locks, you definitely get a Y3/under water ninja type of vibe. If you look closely you can see how nicely Sam asymmetrically wrapped the strap and stitched it to heel, beautifully done.
