Pikkpack (Hungarian for “it’s a piece of cake”) is a DIY footwear kit by Sara Gulyas. Drawing inspiration from a traditional Hungarian design called Bocskor, the shoes are made from a single cut of leather. Bound like Lasso, Wool Felt House Shoes, the flats are held together with colourful shoelaces. The design is lightweight, unisex, and comes flat-packed in a reusable canvas bag. Available in brown or black leather, the shoes are accompanied by laces in one of a wide range of colors, including reflective neons or visibility while cycling. Find the style for you online for $110.
