DIY shoes can be assembled and customized at home

Retail

Currently seeking funding on Kickstarter, PIKKPACK is a range of shoes that use just three pieces of material to enable anyone to assemble and customize them.

We recently wrote about Bamin, the modular bag that comes in several pieces to be zipped together and swapped around by the consumer. Bringing this model to footwear, PIKKPACK is a range of shoes that use just three pieces of material to enable anyone to assemble and customize them.

Designed by Hungary-based Sara Gulyas, the shoes take their inspiration from the bocskor, a type of Hungarian moccasin. Each shoe is made of three pieces — the sole, a leather upper and a ribbon that ties the upper around the foot. Instead of coming in a bulky box that won’t fit through the mailbox, PIKKPACKs are delivered flatpack since they are easy enough for wearers to assemble themselves. Customers can select either black or brown leather, along with their choice of ribbon color from bright green, pink, blue, yellow or gray.

The standard PIKKPACK kit offers the shoes, two shoelace colors, instructions on how to make them and a tote bag to keep them in. Backers can pre-order the shoes from USD 90 until the Kickstarter ends on 1 June. Are there other items of clothes that can be designed with DIY assembly and customization in mind?
