Harp shoes

Elisabeth Thorsen

Handmade decorated leather performance shoes, with a open carved platform sole with harp strings, part of the music shoes collection, 2022.

The upper is made of vegetable leather and is hand tooled with inspiration from the Norwegian Hardingfele (a national traditional stringed instrument). The soles are made as a harp so you can play small melodies on them.

Musical parts, harp strings and tuning pins, made by Ole Bentzon Kjorvik.
