Mens Boulder Boot Brown

 photo bb9_zps0dbd6740.jpg

Weighing a mere 9.9oz (size 43), the Boulder Boot is arguably the lightest boot in the world. The upper is made of water-resistant nylon and full-grain leather to keep away moisture. The whole boot is completely collapsible, great for stuffing into a pack during a hike and wearing around the campfire afterwords. There’s absolutely nothing to this boot, no heel counter, no toe counter, no shank, and nothing stiff that would irritate the foot. If a barely-there boot is what you’re in need of, look no further. Buy here.

Abri-boca explores the theme of transformation- the transition between open spaces to more intimate and enclosed ones. My goal was to primarily observe, understand and research the meaning of “transformation”, which should ultimately lead to a discovery of a new product. I propose that people need “spaces of calmness” to direct the course that they want to live. Yet, these “spaces” seem to vanish in our daily routines. Relaxation, calmness and the awareness that comes from having time to disconnect seem to have a decreasing part in our live. Pursuing that thought, I have conducted research at the intersection of nature, motion, society and living spaces. My goal has been to ultimately create an object that symbolizes and captures the meaning of “Transformation” and creates the user a space to retreat from the hustle of daily live. My design affords users to rest within the object in an open state, and if more privacy is desired, one can easily pull the wooden shell closed via a pivoting mechanism, creating a protective canopy over the occupant.” – Philipp Süssmann

” I am a silversmith, welder, neon artist and teacher living in San Francisco. I love gardening, bicycling and science. I am a huge outer space nerd. My work relies on my own personal narrative and the concept of universal connection. I enjoy working in an extensive variety of materials including metal, paper, neon and organics. All of the materials or media I use are elements of the periodic table. Silver, copper, iron, carbon, neon and all of the noble gases. ” – Meryl Pataky
