Materials: Leather offcuts
Edition: Unique piece
Fuera de juego is the first collaboration between Jorge Penadés and Aldanondoyfdez, a luxury shoe brand based in Barcelona.
The starting point of this project was a shared interest in leather waste; the main and foremost objective was to transcend pure mannerism and explore different directions in which their leather leftovers and offcuts could be re-introduced within their existing business model.
When analyzing this particular framework the idea of leather patchwork was soon brought to the table and we decided to zoom into this technique with a view to create an element from where the project could pivote. A research based on footballs was initiated due to their technical similarities with the method mentioned before and football as theme, became the overall inspiration for this partnership.
The result is an uncanny hybrid between a football boot and a contemporary shoe object - this unique piece was carefully handmade, investing approximately 80 working hours.
