Many styles in one

The Melissa + Gaetano Pesce Shoe offers the wearer seven different styles, all in one shoe.

Imagine you could alter and customise your shoes to suit your outfit, the weather or your mood. With a simple snip of the scissors that is exactly what you can do with the Melissa + Gaetano Pesce Shoe.

Brazilian shoe brand Melissa recently collaborated with one of the foremost names in architecture and international design, the Italian Gaetano Pesce. The result is a shoe, or rather a light-hearted ankle boot, comprising moulded plastic circles connected at the edges. With a quick trim and chop, the boot can easily be turned in slip-ons or ballerina pumps, or anything else the wearer’s creativity allows for.

For the less creatively adventurous, each pair of these limited-edition shoes come with directions on how to create a new style.
