We rarely hear shoemakers talk about going back in time to take inspiration. It's mostly about the latest technologies and the future of shoe-making. But for Trigenic Flex, the latest design innovation from Clarks Originals, the brand referred to its archives to create a footwear that let your feet be! Clarks has always believed in a free-thinking design philosophy and has launched legit icons over the years—The Desert Boot and Wallabee being global examples of the same.

The Trigenic Flex is inspired from an original 1883 Clarks 'Hygiene' design—shoes that were shaped to the natural contours of the foot. "The Clarks Hygienic collection allowed space for the toes to move as you walked—revolutionary for its time. We looked at how we could bring this into a modern context," says Prad Indrakumar, Senior Designer, Clarks Originals. The brand brought together advanced knowledge of contemporary construction, biomechanics, and materials to create a design-led shoe that flexes in sync with the natural sequence of motion.

What's more? It's caught the fancy of many—German designer Marcel Ostertag used the shoe for his Autumn/Winter 2016 show at New York Fashion Week. 

And artist Stuart Whitton created a cool illustration of the making of the shoe from scratch! Watch the video below:
