I haven’t worn heels since years, which I’ve always thought as a mark that I’ve turned into a boring soccer mom. Flats are so bland, right? Not quite. These Marker Shoes designed by Japanese design studio Nendo for Backyard Byn are anything but uninteresting.

Markers are used to drawn patterns on the calfskin leather. Since leather is porous, the ink is partially absorbed to result in  subtle and beautifully washed out designs.
