Squirrel Shoes and Oak Leaf Frills

Squirrel Shoes and Oak Leaf Frills

A collaboration with London-based footwear designer Tracey Neuls, who shares Tord’s appreciation for squirrels: the inquisitive, clever, little town and country creatures.

Tord took Tracey’s sculptural heeled Drop and her classic rubber soled Geek and, taking inspiration from the squirrel’s autumnal surroundings, played with print and leather cuts to create Squirrel Shoes and Oak Leaf Frills.

Tracey and Tord first worked together in 2010 when Tracey used one of Tord’s printed textiles, normally used for upholstery, on a special edition shoe.
