Kris Lovett redefines the "skate shoe" by repurposing old decks into stylish women's wedge-heeled kicks. The colorful stacked wood remnants, after some shaping and TLC, create the soles and heels of Lovett's Reply footwear. (Actually skating in these--not recommended.)
By utilizing the overall shape and material properties found within the deck, the women's shoe takes on an interesting aesthetic quality. This project is also a reapplication of waste skateboard decks in an unexpected way. By taking a movement-based leisure product mainly utilized by males, a creative method of reuse is reapplied to a movement-based market for Eco-conscious women.
Jeannie is a true jack-of-all trades, looks forward to a day gone swimmingly, and finds joy in all things awesome. Brilliant art, rocking the renegade music scene, conjuring up haute designs, other people's hot designs, tasty salad, trashy magazines and unicorns are some of the many things she is passionate about.
