Cool site for cool skips


Just discovered this site over on k10k thanks to Mike Buzzard.

I LURVE the minimalist design of the site as well as the apparent Design appreciation of the company. One of the first things you see at the site is a quote from the co-founder of the Wiener Werkstatte, Josef Hoffman:

"Better to work ten days on one product than to manufacture ten products in one day"

This obsession to quality is so rare these days, so one can only hope that Medium Footwear truly believe's Hoffman's words and are not just using it as a marketing schtick.

My only beef is that the Constructivist shoe appears to be a Womens-only shoe (there is no size 11). Surely some of my fellow brothers have an affinity for Constructivism! I do hope they make a Men's version.

In the meantime the Modernist looks pretty cool, though I wish I knew if Midnight meant Navy or a Dark Charcoal. Navy skips just don't do it for me.

I'm in the market for new skips and these shoes speak to me. Which would you recommend?
