With over 10 years of experience in leather design, Hungarian designer Sara Gulyas wanted to create a versatile product that minimized the amount of material needed to create a shoe…whilst allowing buyers to participate in the shoe-making process. The Pikkpack takes cues from both centuries-old traditional design and IKEA’s DIY mentality to bring the simple manufacturing process to the user with quality materials.
Bockskor: A Traditional Hungarian Shoe
Inspired by a traditional Hungarian shoe called the Bockskor, the Pikkpack is a minimalist leather shoe design that ships with three components: a leather upper, a leather sole, and a colored lace that holds the shoe together.

With a wide range of color-options and sizes, there’s sure to be something here for everybody. You can pick up a pair over on Kickstarter right now starting at $90.
