A related project: limited-edition shoes Daphne made from belts, ropes, threads, rubber soles, and “whatever strange, high-tech things I could find,” she says. “I love those high-tech sneakers and hiking shoes, and this project was kind of an ode to those. I did a tiny production for a Japanese client, but the fit and the quality are so important, so it was complicated. I hope to do something more with this eventually, but I need to figure out how to make them very durable first.”
