Pikkpack innovative flat packing shoe design is a triumph of ergonomic design which can transform a flat piece of leather into a cool shoe.
Clients Pikkpack Webshop had a simple brief for Hungarian designer Sara Gulyas – design something comfortable and long-lasting, but also cool and light on material. Sara, who is a self-confessed shoe junkie herself, came up with the design which was colorful – thanks to the innovative use of single string shoelace, but also easy to pack.
The entire kit, including 1 pair of Pikkpack leather base unit and canvas sides, 2 pairs of shoelaces and a guide for the lacing, weighs less than 0.7 lbs (0.3 kg). The canvas shipping bag can be used once you’ve put your shoe together, for carrying them on later trips. Economical, minimalistic packaging and use of leather material makes Pikkpack shoes environment friendly and flat enough to store in an envelope.
Here’s to the bright, cool new world of shoe packing logistics.
