Valentina Vanguard

SKUA Studio

Boot (with small detachable bag), part of the Chayka Collection, inspired by the Space Age woman, every shoe has it’s own space age character, 2020.

The Chayka collection all started with Valentina Teresjkova, who was the first (Russian) woman who went to space. Her codename was Chayka, meaning seagull in Russian, relating to the funfact that SKUA is also known as a type of seagull. This all came together in a strange but wonderful way.

Material: 100% genuine leather.

Handmade and locally produced in The Netherlands.
