CHARLES BERGMANS SHOE DESIGN
charles bergmans shoe design
The assignment for an anniversary shoe became a pioneering challenge, that resulted in the "Inspiration" project.
Today's shoes are the accumulation of innovation upon innovation, ideas upon ideas, but once upon a time, people made footwear from scratch. My idea was to start from there, why not?
Initially footwear was about protection and using available materials. Figuring out how to wrap leather around the foot and how to make it function somehow.
"Inspiration" resulted in shoes both authentic and quirky, both novel and familiar, both ancient and new.
The logo, a maple seed, is one of nature's little wonders of aviation, a beautiful symbol of the limitless possibilities of our imagination.
