Ica & Kostika is a footwear brand that is redefining the fashion industry with their innovative designs and cutting-edge technology. Founded by footwear designer Ica Paru and architect Kostika Spaho, the duo met in New York City in 2014 while collaborating on 3D printed shoes and fell in love. Their shared passion for merging fashion and technology led them to establish their studio as a brand, which has since pioneered computational design and on-demand production in the industry.
At Ica & Kostika, the brand operates on a made-to-order basis, allowing them to create each pair of shoes on-demand. The factory is completely automated, with robots handling the production process, ensuring that there is no excessive inventory that needs to be held. While the Mycelium Sneakers are currently only available online for US customers, the brand is looking to expand with the help of retail partners. They believe that technology has evolved to a stage where they can offer their customers truly extraordinary and unique products, and they look forward to continuing to innovate and push the boundaries of what is possible in footwear design.
