new york city-based artist olek has taken her trademark medium to footwear, applying an intricate crochet pattern to a series of summer shoes. a typical flip-flop, wedge bootie, sandal pump, and peep-toe high-heel comprise the collection of vibrantly colored shoes, adorned in complex floral patterns and metallic details. elaborate weavings are stitched onto the shoe shape, forming straps, bows buckles and heels. gold, red, purple, white and light blue encompass the pallet, taking on a lively and dynamic tone. each pair of art items reflects the delicacy and dexterity inherent in the craft, while simultaneously spicing up the set of ordinary shoes.
