The Bella Shoe Unwound
Posted by ALAINA GONZALEZ
The Bella shoe consists of a black embossed snakeskin leather strap that winds up the leg and molds to the leg as you walk. This shoe probably took around 10 prototypes until we finally got it to work. The hardest part was finding a metal to put inside the strap that would hold up the shoe but also molds to the leg.
When designing, inspiration can come from many different places. Using a person or a fictional character for inspiration lends itself to endless possibilities when it comes to designing.
