Posted September 23, 2018 07:01:11 Redwing work bootmaker Mark Smith is best known for designing footwear for the royal family, and for creating the works that have been immortalised in the works by Shakespeare himself.
Mark has been known to share his passion for footwear with other designers and industry professionals, and this week, he released his latest collection, The Works Of Shakespeare.
The Redwing Works Of Sartre is one of a handful of shoes that feature his signature signature redwing design, which is a mix of vintage work boots and high-quality leather work boots.
“It was an obvious decision to do something with redwing, it’s a design that I’m extremely passionate about,” he told ABC News.
Mark explains the inspiration behind The Works of Sartres shoes.
Mark Smith says he had a strong interest in footwear at a young age, but it wasn’t until he moved to Australia that he began to take on the shoes seriously.
“I thought, ‘Why can’t I be more creative?
Why can’t this be something that I can create myself?'”
Mark says he first thought about using leather shoes for the shoe because they’re cheaper and can be crafted from a variety of materials, but he soon realised that he’d be able to make the shoes even better with a blend of the two.
“There’s so much that we can do with leather and we can create something that’s very durable,” Mark said.
Mark said his next shoe would be an homage to the Bard.
“My favourite thing about the Bard is he’s so good at writing.
And what’s the best way to write about yourself and your work?
With shoes,” he said.
“And that’s why I started designing shoes with that in mind.”
The Red Wing Works Of Rimbaud is the latest addition to the range.
Mark described the Redwing as a work of art in its own right.
“That’s how you can tell it’s from the author’s handwork, and that’s how I’ve got to make it my own,” he explained.
“The Redwing is a work that’s not just a work in the same mould as the Shakespeare boots.”
Mark said the work shoes would be available from Redwing online store, as well as retail stores and through their own online store.
He said he would also be making the shoes available for sale in the UK.
