Fascinated by a working glove whose inside was covered with a thin layer of rubber, Vera Roggli started doing experiments with the Material UR3440. In collaboration with Studio Roderick Pieters, Vera Roggli developed a small collection of shoes, consisting of a sandal and a slip-in shoe („Beuys-Slip-In“ & „Beuys-Sandalettes“).
The idea was to make a shoe without stitched seams. The shoes were developed by only using two components - leather and rubber. It is the rubber that holds the shoe together.
Materials used for shoes: Calf Leather, UR3440
