The WAVE shoe is a modern Finnish wooden shoe which is light to walk in. The heel provides a comfortable angle for the
foot: rising softly and then bending to form a round curve under the heel – like a wave about to crash the sea shore. The
body of each WAVE shoe is made out of Finnish birch, using traditional wood bending techniques in an innovative way.
Moulding wood into the design was at first deemed impossible by experts. After persistent testing, however, the appropriate
technique – pioneered by Finnish architect Alvar Aalto – was applied to the manufacturing process successfully. WAVE
captures the feeling and atmosphere of the Finnish summer: light, colorful, playful, different and happy.
