initial sketch of "flood clogs"


The rains reminded me of the shoes i recently created for my resort collection which was presented at Shangri-La Makati's high tea.

samples in linen

I had to sculpt the prototype myself since my carver could never get the proportions right. After several weeks of relentless reshaping i came up with this six inch clogs designed to defy pavement puddles.

final 6-inch product

But can one really safely say “ apr├Ęs moi, le deluge?” with these Flood Clogs?
