Un/tied Shoes is a new shoe store – but it doesn’t sell any shoes!
Instead, it tells a story. Untied Shoes highlights the shopping experience of someone who identifies as genderqueer. It follows the life of Evie Ruddy (they/them) and features shoes inspired by 9 key moments in their life. These moments are used to explore the challenges of the gender-binary nature of shopping. For example, did you know that in Europe there is a gender-neutral shoe sizing system? It isn’t commonly used in Canada.
