Geology of Shoes Video

Geology of Shoes from Petr Krejčí on Vimeo.

Here is a video by Petr Krejči of The Czech Republic that shows a shoe craftsperson creating a pair of shoes based on sedimentary layers of rock. The colors and banding might also take patterns from geological survey maps.

You need to watch the video to see how the shoes tie to geology. Also it is an educational lesson on how shoes are assembled.
