Suh Kyung Hee and Yie Kwang Sub: "Impressed by the traditional beauty of Korea and warm, clean atmosphere, I produced shoes filled with Korean beauty. I was inspired by my shoes from Danghye, traditional Korean shoes for women, and the beautiful curved lines of the toes of beoseon, traditional Korean padded socks.
I used strong red, which symbolizes warmth and endurance for a long time. I produced winter flats made of beige leather and grey wool finished with red stitches and straps imparting a quiet yet clean atmosphere, and red leather flats with red straps suited for spring and summer. I also made flats for spring and autumn with beige leather with beautiful curved lines highlighted with black leather. Flats made half of leather and half of wool remind us of black rubber shoes unique to Korea."
