Bloom / Boots

Bloom
Bloom

Through the shoes we wear, we can connect with the mother earth, and it would take affects on our perception and emotion. There should be a pair of shoes which can respons the seasonal changes and let us listening to the nature’s voice. Bloom is the concept boots to respons the seasons. There are several flower-shape cuts on the boots’ surfaces, and each one has a soft wire inside to support its shape. It’s just a pair of cool black boots in winter days, but as the spring and summer comes, the user would bend the flower-shape cuts up for allowing ventilation, and it would like the flower blooming on the boots.
