Buttero SS15 Derby Collection

With derbies being one of my favourite shoe models, I couldn’t get any more excited to see the latest deliveries from Buttero. Their SS15 update features double welted stitching, creased vamp and all new uppers in rubber-coated calf leather. Leather soles with 3cm heel finish these outstanding shoes.

Disused materials including tyres, burlap sacks and rope are recycled into footwear for the developing world in this project by Ravensbourne university students 

Soled is a project by product design students Jena Kitley, Alani Fadzil and Lauren Joseph, who worked together to come up with a solution for an issue they identified in the developing world.


"Rwanda has an abundance of tyres, a durable, flexible, waterproof material, which was suitable to be used for the sole of the shoe," said Kitley. "Burlap sacks – used to import and export their produce – and hemp rope were other accessible materials that would be used to complete the footwear."
