DESIGN STORY 11: Viking Gaupe Light
As one of our most established clients, we’ve designed many boots for Viking Footwear that were aptly engineered to combat the harsh Scandinavian climate, however, when tasked to maintain that same level of elite protection, but without the added weight of leather in the upper, the Viking Gaupe Light would need to be approached with a more tactful tilt.
VIKING GAUPE LIGHT IDEATION
When collaborating with @VikingFootwear on design, it is often under the construction of robust leathers, historically trusted to combat harsh Scandinavian conditions. However, when tasked to maintain that elite protection, but without the weight, the makeup and materials needed to be reconsidered, top to bottom. #ghostworks #invisibleforce #cultureofgear #footwear #footweardesign #IDsketches #hikingboots
VIKING GAUPE LIGHT FINAL PRODUCT
All at once lightweight AND heavy duty, the resulting @VikingFootwear #Gaupe Light is a resilient and reliable trekking boot, equipped with a lightweight GORE-TEX textile upper and tuned UGC tooling that combine to ensure optimal protection, but without all the ounces typically associated with extreme hikers. #ghostworks #invisibleforce #cultureofgear #footwear #footweardesign #hikingboots #trekking #viking A photo posted by Ghost Works (@weareghostworks) on
