Featured on our shoes is a pen drawing based on Picasso’s piece “The Dream,” by renowned South Korean artist, Tony Grimm

 Tony’s drawings are highly detailed yet have an unpredictable feel to them. We’ve heightened that concept by printing the drawings on a texture which is wrinkled to appear like paper.

The creases are a result of a series of strong compressions.

​The wrinkles appear naturally with the continuous application of compression and high temperatures.

This patented technology also improves the quality of the material.

We are shipping to you directly from our factory in South Korea. In order to get your shoes to you faster we are shipping via air mail rather than by sea. In reality, this costs 30 dollars per pair to ship to the USA and other countries. But we are charging 25 dollars shipping per pair. 

Each additional pair adds 10 dollars to the shipping cost. 


The Production Process

You will find our workshop in the trendy Seongsu neighborhood of Seoul, South Korea. Often referred to as the Brooklyn of Seoul, it’s also an area well-known for its craftsmanship in shoe making. 

It is important to us to produce our shoes ethically, so we chose a workshop that has fair working conditions and wages.Our artisans have over 20 years’ experience in the shoe making business and are passionate about what they do. Each sneaker is handmade with a level of care which is not easily found in factories, allowing our shoes to remain free of defects.

If you are unsure of your shoe size please measure the length of your foot carefully by tracing your foot on a piece of paper, then measuring the outline. T.Grimm sizing is in millimeters- this is the length of the inside of the shoe. Be sure to think about how much room you want inside of the shoe.

We’ve worked extremely hard to make this shoe a reality, but we still have a long way to go. With your funding, we will be able to produce our sneakers and get them onto more feet throughout the world. 

Our journey in shoe creation has not been easy, but your journey to ownership can be easy! Just pledge to our campaign and we will ship you your new shoes within 2 months. 

Risks and challenges

We spent 1.5 years researching for this product. The biggest challenge we had was combining high technology with artistic design. We didn't want the beautiful qualities of the shoe to get lost in the process of making a durable and comfortable shoe.

Another challenge was finding an artist to collaborate with that matched our concept.

We also tried to push the boundaries of our design in order to make a product that is totally unique and different from mainstream clothing brands.

Now, moving forward, we hope that through crowdfunding that we can produce more sneakers.
