Walter Steiger's 'Punchy' sandal is the perfect definition of a paradox. It's a delicate and minimalistic sandal on the leg, with a high and somewhat intimidating unmistakable heel. It's convex curve speaks of aggression in a kind of gothic-like atmosphere or, perhaps, in an animalistic way, much like a claw seeking its prey.
The 'Punchy' clearly packs a punch by its sculptural nature, as well as by its complex sensuality and sophistication. No surprise that it was one of the footwear of choice for a Vogue Germany editorial with Salma Hayek - a powerful woman needs an equally powerful shoe. Walter Steiger delivers above and beyond.
