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?

PROTOTYPE

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.
