Never would I have imagined that the sight of a pair of shoes could touch my heart and make it pitter, patter…until I saw, “Dance Shoes, For The Father and the Daughter”.
Remember the days when you would dance with your parents or grandparents? I think most of us remember standing on their feet making us feel “taller” while glided around the room. Oh, the memories! Well Company has developed one of the most unique pair of shoes I have ever laid eyes on, that allow you to do just that!
Founders and Finnish designers Johan Olin and Aamu Song, have developed an interesting approach to the entire design and manufacturing process. By visiting factories and craftsmen in Germany, Finland and South Korea, and working with the various skills of the manufacturers, they have established a system that helps to prevent traditional factories from dying out.
Take a closer look at these “bonding” dance shoes, after the jump!
One of their most genius designs, Tanssitossut, are manufactured by Huopaliike Lahtinen in Jämsä, Finland, and come in candy apple red. These felt shoes have a rubber sole with a slight tread on the bottom that help prevent slipping (great for over-zealous dancers).
You can pick up a pair of these pretties for 95 (shipping is 15 inside Europe or 25 for other countries). Sizes range from 18-24 months up to 2 1/2 – 3 years. To order or for more information, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
