Give On-Demand Treatment to Dress Shoes Using Permanent Markers
Salivate over Nendo's Marker Shoes, the swankiest on-demand dress shoes around
Regular readers of ours will have heard of Nendo, the Japanese design firm founded by Oki Sato. There’s a reason their pieces keep getting featured on our site—they’re beautiful, functional, and always innovative. This time is no different; we would love to get our hands on some of these Marker Shoes.
Designed for their BACKYARD by | n collaboration between Nendo and Seibu and Sogo Department Stores, these shoes bring the on-demand footwear market into the grown-up world.
Nendo is far from the first company working within the customizable on-demand shoe sector; NIKEiD has been doing it since 1999, and companies like Converse and Vans run contests and ad campaigns that encourage their users to customize their own footwear.
