These multifunctional sandals are characterised by a maximally reduced, urban style. The wearer has the choice of two different types: a closed form and an open variant with holes. The closed sole is recommended in rainy weather or use in the garden. Alternatively, the perforated sole assures pleasant foot ventilation on hot days and lets water drain off easily. Since they are made of EVA foam resin, the sandals are well-cushioned and extremely light.

Statement by the Jury

A wide range of applications, an extraordinary low weight and a purist appearance – these are the special advantages of bi × sole.
