Eytys first made a name for themselves with the exaggerated rubber soles on their clean tennis shoes, and now they're adding to their reputation with a series of clever collaborations. This time round, they came up with a concept with legendary Milanese store 10 Corso Como, to work with American ceramicist Jessica Hans on two pairs of abstract-patterned suede sneakers (a low top and a high top).

Hans' pottery is bold-patterned and peculiar-shaped and her work has been influenced by the Memphis Milano design movement and artists Jean Miró and Keith Haring. "The collaboration has been a really exciting opportunity to see my work translated onto a new medium!" Jessica told us. Eytys creative director Max Schiller added, "We love Jessica's work. It has an iconic, post-modern aesthetic while being hand-made with beautiful imperfections and misshapes playing a leading role. Her pieces look like nothing we've ever seen before, like something taken out of the prop closet of a Tim Burton movie."

The shoes go in 10 Corso Como stores worldwide and at eytys.com on Thursday 24th September.
