OUR WILD WEST BANK
3rd Year 2nd Semester
My footwear project is inspired by the mass occurring everyday and night in the occupied territories of the west bank. I see it as the modern wild west and so my inspiration for the boots is inspired by the iconic cowboys boots. I took the original cowboy boot with it's famous spurs and mixed it up with elements of the army boot. I divided the body of the shoe into bricks of the separation wall with it's famous graffiti art works against the occupation, and the sandals which is a feature of the young Israeli settlers which I colored with the colors of the Palestinian flag.
