Convertible shoes are one of Aldanondo and Fdez’s fixations. For this Barcelona atelier, overcoming the imperatives of seasonal collections is almost an obsession.

This is achieved this time with a saddle —the type of shoe that is usually worn to dance swing— to which a gaiter has been incorporated that makes it two-tone or turns it into an ankle boot.

This saddle is another of Aldanondo and Fdez’s experiments that start from the classic models. When designing convertible shoes, the biggest challenge is drawing the pattern. Knowing how to make the pattern of the classic models of shoes is the previous step to design your own models that are functional. The necessary techniques can be learned in the Pattern Making, Cutting and Sewing Course available.
