SHAPE / shoebox


We can get a practical shoetree by simply cutting normal corrugated paperboard without extra materials.
This design won’t add any plastics into our daily consumption. We can make a shoetree in a recyclable and eco-friendly way.
Corrugated paperboard has the flexibility and durability,which make it match the requirement of making shoetrees.
