Pikkpack is a pair of flat-packed leather shoes that you assemble yourself. They’re cut from only one piece of leather, have hand-sewn soles, and come with different colored laces that add a bright pop of color.
Pikkpack is the brainchild of a Hungarian designer Sara Gulyas, who has years of experience in leather design. These shoes were actually created for a university project, and inspired by an old Hungarian shoe named bocskor (pronounced: “BOTCH-core” ). Out came Pikkpack, a do-it-yourself pair of shoes that is a Hungarian play on words meaning “piece of cake”.
Not only are the shoes easy to assemble yourself, the lightweight nature and small packaging conserves materials and decreases shipping costs. With its supple yet durable leather, it’s also breathable and snug, which is especially great for travel.
