Fashionable footwear designed for people with flat feet.
-Why should people have to choose between fashion, comfort, and foot correction when they can have all three?
-I was inspired by many high-end footwear designs to create something fashionable
-With over 30 design iterations, I was able to create a form that I saw fit.
-Lacing techniques, zippers, and elastic bands were all considered.
I constructed a low-fidelity model out of foam, fabric, and cardboard for a physical representation of the shoe itself.
-The outsole is intended to be created from SweetFoam™, as used in Allbird sneakers, which is perfect for bouncy feet and comfort.
-The eco-friendly outsole conserves non-recyclable materials.
-A molded cork layer provides arch support but does not inflict the pain that orthodics can cause.
-An EVA foam insole provides comfort with its soft-like padding.
-The elastic strap secures the foot, keeping it from flexing further than average.
-Heel-stablizing comfort foam helps to prevent injury from pressure in that area.
