Have you ever jumped on your luggage to get it to close? Say goodbye to the packing struggle; you’ll save both money and space with these versatile Italian kicks. The patented design features a separate skin and sole that easily zip together, minimizing the unnecessary bulk that would accompany a traditional pair of shoes. But despite their motivation to create an incredibly compact form, the clever designers never lost sight of aesthetic and material details; high-quality Italian leather, bio-cotton, and an eco-friendly microfiber lining combined with an ergonomic outer sole and waterproof zipper make Shooz an accessible, sensible choice for modern life.

They can even be worn barefoot thanks to inseam “zip protection” that prevents rubbing and chafing. Three different soles – “drive,” “urban,” or “running,” – can be paired with a variety of skins for a fully customizable look. One thing that doesn’t change, however, is the special patented insole that guarantees comfort on the go. “Corsa” offers a sporty aesthetic, while “Duilio” mimics a classic wingtip style for dressier occasions. A sleek lace-up, “Stringa,” or “Mocasino, a comfortable yet chic slip-on, give you a chance to relax without sacrificing your style – or space; every beautifully-made skin folds flat for ultimate travel efficiency. Aside from Shooz obvious practicality as an efficient and affordable travel accessory, the fact that it only takes one sole to achieve a wide variety of styles has a significant environmental implication. As it turns out, “the manufacturing process used to make the sole of a normal shoe is what leaves the largest carbon footprint.” By wearing Shooz, you’re not only saving money – but you’re saving the planet. Not to mention the modular design makes washing and drying infinitely easier – simply throw the skin in the wash “and you’ll get a deeper cleaning and faster drying than than you ever would with a regular pair of shoes.” Support their kickstarter campaign to learn more and get your very own pair.
