developing the most sustainable
SHOE for 2040

We are a team of design engineering students and we are tired of wasting so many shoes.
We concieved the a shoe that could be worn everyday, no matter what style you want
Custom made just for you.

WHAT'S WRONG WITH TODAY'S SHOE?

23 BILLION

pairs of shoes sold worldwide

7.5

pairs of shoes purchased by Americans annually on average

OVER 80%

end up in landfill

63

individual parts to manufacture one shoe, often made and assembled in different countries

WHAT DO WE DO ABOUT IT?

We can't predict the fashion trends of the future. However, it is very likely that we will still wear shoes.
So how can we limit the impact of our footwear on the planet?

REDUCE

We reduce the number of shoe one need to just one, with AR visualisation

OPTIMISE

We increase the lifetime of this shoe as as much as possible: the shoe heals itself

BIODEGRADE

We make it fully biodegradable: no more shoes in landfill

SIMPLIFY

Advancement in 3D printing technologies will make it possible to print the shoe anywhere

DESIGNED TO WEAR EVERYDAY, with Augmented reality

The simplest way to be sustainable is to consume less.

Augmented Reality technologies will enable you to choose your shoe design, everyday. A biodegradable chip inside the shoe allows it to be recognized and map the model of your choice on your foot.
No need for a different pair of shoe to go with every outfit. No need to by new pairs every year to stay trendy. You just need one pair.

What will your shoes look like?

DESIGNED TO heal itself

The shoe repairs itself. It’s custom made for the user foot to minimize wear, and it has a healing system to extend its lifespan.

Alongside the exceptional strength and self healing properties, the shoe is 100% biodegradable.

DESIGNED FOR YOU

The shoe is 3D printed, made according to the shape of your foot and your walking pattern. The vascular system, the midsole lattice, and the outsole venation pattern are designed to fit your walking pattern and your foot pressure map.

It is 3D printed locally, in your community.
