PRODUCT DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT

An innovative collaboration between two worlds: Footwear and Furniture.

L.E.O. matched up with the very talented bespoke furniture maker Howard Butler with the aim to break boundaries. 
The the two put their brains together and managed to create a design that respected the delicacy of the maple veneer and the flexibility of the sneakers.

The result was a beautiful pair of high quality sustainable sneakers.

Both sneakers are handmade in soft eco suede made from recycled PET plastic.
