The WildWood recently got a mention on Lloyd Kahn‘s personal blog. This was a very kind nod from a somewhat hero of ours. For those of you who don’t know who Lloyd Kahn, he is a pioneer of the green building movement and he was among many things, the “Shelter” editor/contributor for the Whole Earth Catalog.

Heavily influenced by Bucky Fuller, he began building geodesic domes and published  Domebook and later Shelter which documented other home building methods found across the world. His writings and ideas of shelter building have been a huge influence and inspiration to many folks.

Examples of English frame construction types from Shelter.

Here are some shoe choices from the Whole Earth Catalog of August 1972.

While Walter Dryer is still around as a company, I dont think they are still offering these handmade mocs, to bad especially at that price.

Wish Wallabees were still only $23.95

A classic.
