We gotta hand it to the people behind Pikkpack; not once did we ever think the IKEA philosophy could be applied to footwear. But lo and behold, these are indeed flat-packed leather shoes that you assemble yourself.
Inspired by an old Hungarian shoe named bocskor, and originally created for a college project, these innovative kicks are cut from just a single piece of leather. Each Pikkpack kit comes with a pair of flat-packed leather shoes in the color of your choice, two pairs of shoelaces in two preferred colors, instructions and a tutorial on how to put the shoes together, and a cotton bag to carry your shoes in. They’re said to be breathable and snug, and perhaps an excellent choice for putting together a new dining table. [Purchase]
