The unique collaboration between internationally acclaimed designer Kostas Murkudis and Anne-Katrin Hummel, creative director of flip*flop is over. I got this information from the press agent of flip*flop. What a shame. I love my Murkudis heels and I planned on getting another pair soon. You still get the shoes Murkudis designed for the German company in their shops but I guess when the shoes sold out they will be gone forever. I hope I am lucky and find one of the pairs in bright colors which give you the impression of a rainbow under your feet. You find some pictures of those here.
The inspiration for the shoes was the flip*flop original. Inspired by the idea of “Technology meets Nature”, flip*flop came up with a way to layer leather and EVA ( the material used for the original flip*flops) to create a stacked wedge. The first collection was launched in summer 2009 during Berlin fashion week. The shoes are so comfy and made great design affordable for everyone. There is no way I see myself buying pieces from a regular Murkudis collection. If you ask yourself who Kostas Murkudis is, you can read about him in this post.
