Dance Shoes for Father and Daughter

Dance Shoes for Father and Daughter

Finnish designers Aamu Song and Johan Olin visit factories and craftsmen in Germany, South Korea and Finland, see what they’re capable of producing, and then design products that correlate with the skill set of the manufacturers. Rather than letting these traditional factories die out, they propose to take charge of the skills already out there to create new products.

Dance Shoes for Father and Daughter

Under the name Company, Song and Olin have acheived wondrous results by taking this approach. My personal favorite (pictured above) “Dance Shoes, For the Father and the Daughter,” were designed for a Finnish felt factory.

Available for $95 from the Company Secret Shop.

    I don't see any reason why they couldn't be, this just happens to be the theme chosen by the designer. Good point!

    The shoes looks very adorable and I think this father and daughter shoes are very unique. Most of the times I found designs for daughters and mothers. This idea is very wonderful.
