Collaboration between footwear designer Tracey Neuls and furniture designer Tord Boontje.

Following a successful collaboration together in 2010, footwear designer Tracey Neuls and furniture designer Tord Boontje are back again for an exclusive footwear launch.

Their playful approach to design and like-mindedness has resulted in a special limited edition footwear collection, celebrating the humble and curious squirrel.

Neuls and Boontje share a great liking for these inquisitive, clever, little creatures. Tord Boontje uses this signature squirrel and its autumnal surroundings to play with print and laser cut leather. Tracey Neuls provides her distinctive sculptural heeled pump and classic rubber soled derby flats.

Emotion and narrative inspire the final forms, resulting in iconic designs that reveal an elegant but playful side of the wearers’ personality.

Tracey Neuls

Tracey Neuls is a vital force in contemporary footwear design and known as 'the designers designer.' In a market saturated by sameness, Neuls always breaks the mould and presents something unique and intriguing.

The way Neuls designs is getting rarer. She's doesn't simply choose components off a factory shelf, she designs every detail herself. All toe shapes and sculptural heels are signature to her. Bridging the gap between art and design, her footwear is conceptual yet wearable and for the past 16 years has succeeded in designing shoes that are comfortable and beautiful, two elements that aren't always found together.

'Good design is something you feel as much as you see' - Tracey Neuls
