CAMPER shoes, as seen on the thinkmore WoF.

What Swatch did for watches, Camper seems to have done for shoes. Often witty design, not silly expensive, generally innovative in materials and approach – in some ways, the perfect shoe for the designer who finds stimulation+joy in bright ideas and their physical artifacts. And this approach extends throughout the Camper experience – the website, the little seasonal books, the small bag of wooden toys above, the shoes.

As the readers of this diminutive blog know, Camper makes the perfect driving shoe. Unfortunately, it is no longer in production – and this is bound to happen with a company constantly moving, changing, flexing. I’d suggest heading down to a Camper store today – if there’s a shoe that fits, clear out their inventory or someone else will.

For an idea of size, the pegs on the wall are 4″ on center, about 10cm.
