Altering the Landscape

The shoes that Kristofers Reidzāns has designed are more than just practical footwear. They have been created to become extensions of the body. In Kristofers’ own words: “amplifying the body’s navigation through contemporary urban space”. With his ‘Altering the Landscape’ range, he wants the wearer to consciously perform the act of walking, to take in the feeling of being a moving element within the landscape. Made of complementing synthetic and natural materials, in close collaboration with Latvian craftsmen, the shoe has been reinvented as a platform for a new experience every step of the way.
