Sustainable first step shoe design
The use of experimental biodegradable, sustainable materials, and the ergonomics of the sole are the key elements of the concept.
I designed the sole to bring the best support to the growing little feet. Once the product is worn out, it can be thrown into the organic waste, reducing the environmental impact of the product, especially when compared with the traditional products on the market.
Besides, a regular leather shoe takes between 20 to 40 years to melt in a dumpsite.
Instead, this one I developed will melt in only 748 days. It results in a footwear product that is healthy and environmentally friendly, too.
