Once again, Japanese design agency Nendo challenge us to think outside the box, this time by teaming up with Tod’s on a boat shoe collaboration named The Envelope. The slip-on receives its name from the unique detail connecting the tongue and side of the shoe, modeled after the button and string closure mechanism found on large manila envelopes. Nendo state that “like the envelope that encloses an important letter and is sent far away to bring people happiness, we hoped our shoe would support the foot as it travels far, bringing happiness as it goes.” The shoe is offered in six colors — from brown, black, grey and green to blue — in either matte leather, suede or a blend of both. Purchase the slip-on style here for $565.
