Shoe Design

About Us

The Shoe Design Studio designs shoes and accessories to bring not only joy and feeling of uniqueness, but also comfort and understanding of the natural structure of the foot. Therefore, everything we create comes into being with the knowledge that it is first and foremost a shoe with its basic functions and uses. A shoe protects, a shoe helps, a shoe graces.

The studio builds on the long tradition of shoemaking in Zlín. We believe that design too must go hand in hand with the knowledge of the craft and manufacturing techniques. As we build on rich history and verified knowledge, we can look for innovations and explore unbeaten paths. Thus, students have room for their own inventiveness and imagination.
