Archishoes is a project that includes a series of models of sneakers, whose design derives from a synthesis of the distinctive elements of some buildings that are symbols of the new Milanese architecture. Soles, laces and uppers of these shoes recall the sinuous curves or the sharp corners of walls, beams and rods. The shoe is the tactile gap [interface] between foot the ground, between man and the city.
Archishoes physically expresses this relationship with a design process that starts from photographic research as a source of formal analysis and selection.
