Julie Bergan has designed her own Kari Traa sneakers

Sneaker junkie and pop artist Julie Bergan has designed her own shoes together with Kari Traa. Bergan has been working with the brand since last autumn and says that designing her own shoes has long been a dream, one that she never thought would come true.

“Sneakers are love, and are ALWAYS my go-to shoes – regardless of whether they are for everyday use, parties, concerts or exercising. They are the shoes I have never been able to live without and the shoes that I can never get enough of,” explains the artist who can still hardly believe that she has designed her very own pair.

“I dreamed of getting the opportunity to design shoes for a long time, but I did not dare to believe that it could happen. I have used Kari Traa clothing for years, so when I heard that they were going to make shoes, I was very excited.”

Bergan says that she wanted to make shoes that could be paired with everything, while also sticking out a bit and helping to give an outfit some distinction.

“After many, many years of wearing sneakers, I have noticed that my favorite are the ones that are the most versatile, but that also have exciting colors.”

Julie Bergan`s shoe is made from a knitted elastic material in various green colors, which creates a cool and unique military look. The gold details in the logo and on the tips of the laces give the shoes that little extra.

“It was important to me that they are made from a comfortable material and at the same time have a slightly thicker sole (something I feel might give me some slightly longer legs, hehe). The entire process with Kari Traa has been fantastic and I am so happy to have used my own creativity in everything from choosing the color of the sole to the tips of the laces. Everything has been really educational and fun to be a part of.”

Now, Bergan is looking forward to the streets drying up, so that she can use them.

“I hope, of course, that others will think they are as fresh and nice as I do. The first time I put them on my foot I hardly realized that I was wearing shoes. They are so light and comfortable, and they fit like a dream!

The shoes will be sold exclusively on karitraa.com beginning February 27th.
