ARTWORK featuring 200 shoes with green laces reaching skyward was on display at the iCon building last week.

The University of Northampton hosted the ‘eco-artwork’ which is called Field and was created by artist Dominic Wilcox.

The shoes were donated by local shoe manufacturers and charities and, in part, constructed by the public.

Field aims to represent both the people of Northamptonshire, their lives and their connection with Northamptonshire’s unique industrial and manufacturing heritage, and the importance of this surviving industry to the future growth and cultural identity of the county.

The shoe artwork is now on display in Kettering.
