Origami shoe by Sipho Mabona

This origami was created for Japanese shoe company ASICS by Sipho Mabona of Mabona Origami. Original video is here. Celebrating corporate advertising isn’t really our thing, but this little movie is pretty engaging and it has, not surprisingly, won many of the world’s top animation and advertising awards. We can’t figure out where Mabona grew up, but he seems to be a black South African living in Switzerland who’s now a world-renowned origami artist. He also did the origami for Fleet Foxes’ “Mykonos” video.

    In the German version it is said that he grew up in Luzern, where he lives. In the English version, they skipped that half sentence.
