LYF Shoes

LYF is a swap-it type shoe made of replaceable components which can be either repaired of recycled. The modular shoe is the brainchild of Aly and Beth Khalifa who were inspired by Japanese Joinery. The brothers wanted to develop a mechanical assembly that did not rely on glue or fasteners. LYF are clog looking shoes made completely recyclable and can be repaired by anyone with a rudimentary grasp of fabric cutting and whittling. LYF shoes retail at $US 150 and are available online and in stores.
