Nearly three years after first revealing his concept for a shoe with no foot-plate on Dezeen, architect and shoe designer Julian Hakes talks about designing the Mojito shoe as the first collection goes into production.

The Julian Hakes collection will be on display at Pure London, Olympia, from 19 to 21 August and at Somerset House during London Fashion Week in September.
