If you only wear big brand name shoes, the creations of 21-year old Brazilian designer Pedro Lourenço might come as a pleasant surprise to you. The Pedro Lourenço x Alexandre Birman Wooden Strap Sandals from his Spring/Summer 2012 collection are not only to die for, but also aesthetically stunning and can prove to be quite game changing sometime in the future. With a cylindrical heel made in natural wood, the Wooden Strap Sandals feature a leather insole in red below which lie cylindrical natural wood blocks.
This clever use of blocks and heels in wood is mimicked by the fabric used in the rest of shoe which makes it an almost-all natural product in the end. A beige textured panel spans across the toe and the front of the ankle and is complemented by a white leather panel. Along the front of the foot lies a wide, white cord lace that wraps around the foot towards the back of heel and deliciously highlights the wearer’s foot.
These Pedro Lourenco runway shoes are crafted entirely from wood which make them an absolutely must have for the fashionista looking to add eco-friendly shoes to their repertoire. The strap sandals give the illusions of being very delicate while gripping the feet perfectly. The unusual design is mature beyond Lourenço’s years and his creations exceed expectations each season. These wooden shoes are absolutely to-die-for and help the wearer make a statement.
With their beautifully shape and perfectly crafted natural outline, the sandals look like mini sculptural pieces on the feet and can make even the plainest outfit to look red carpet ready. The worldwide exclusive Pedro Lourenço x Alexandre Birman Wooden Strap retails for £777.
