Death from Above
Great design, in my experience, need not be revolutionary. There needn’t be grand sweeping changes, or abstractions from what is familiar. Often it is more about refining the details, taking what is tried and tested, and making each line a little smoother, each curve a little more balanced.
In this sense, I see Koji Suzuki as one of the great shoe designers working today. His designs don’t offer anything too unusual or new, but rather he takes what we know and makes it that little bit better.
