Let your piggie toes free!

Bernard Rudofsky

Unimpressed with contemporary clothing. An architect of vernacular design.

Bernardo Footwear, established in 1947, was inspired by Roman sandals that mimicked the shape of the foot. He designed sandals when they weren’t the popular shoe to wear. He believed that the modern shoe was designed for a much different foot than intended. I can’t post a picture of what he means because it’s too disturbing, so you can click here. We should all thank Bernard for letting our piggies get some breathing room!
