Project Flat Pack Shoe
Discipline Industrial Design
Duration 3 weeks
The flat-pack shoe is user-friendly and portable. After a long day outdoors, the user is welcomed to a pair of soft, woven felt shoe that is easy to slip-on.
HOW MIGHT WE...
Design a pair of flat-pack shoes using the laser cutter and end user assembly with one shoelace string?
high top ankle strap + no back loop ring
high top ankle strap + mid strap with bow tie + back loop ring
low ankle + overlapping wrap + cross section strap + mid back loop ring
low ankle + standard frontal lace up + back loop ring
low ankle + body cross section wrap + mid back loop ring
I initially started with paper prototypes to roughly get the form of the shoe, then I moved on to felt paper to refine the form. Ultimately, I prototyped my shoe on blanket felt to adjust the size of my shoe since the material is more flexible than paper.
