Background

“The details are not the details. They make the design.” 
 —Charles Eames

Inspired by traditional leather craftsmanship and intricate hand-sewing techniques, I set out to create a footwear design that blends traditional leather construction with modern footwear and sneaker design.

Outcome

A streetwear inspired athletic sneaker, incorporating high-quality European leather for both style and comfort. The Sawa Leather Sneaker combines traditional leather craftsmanship and active footwear to create a versatile design that can be worn both on and off the court.
