Semi-modular trail running footwear designed for ease of repair and reuse [Read more]
Modular trail running footwear - run, repair, reuse
The footwear is designed for repair, allowing for multiple cycles of reuse. The footwear has added benefit of customisation to the sole sections to suit the user and improve performance on changeable trail conditions.
Modular footwear - prototype
The minimal design of the footwear allows for fabric panels in the upper to be replace or repaired easily.
Modular footwear - components
Prototyping of the footwear was done with the use of FDM 3D printing in flexible TPU filaments. This allowed for a functional prototype to be created at relatively low cost.
Modular footwear - semantics of repair
The semantics for the footwear aim to emphasise the modularity and repair. The goal is to create a nostalgic/emotional connection between product and user leading to a longer cycle of use.
