Shoe Study - A project focused on improving the ergonomics of a climbing shoe; specifically, overcoming the need for excessive tightness often causing permenant foot deformation. In conjunction with a sports physio, it was concluded that climbers often preferred a painfully tight shoe due to a lifting and correspondant strengthening of the plantarfascia ligament group in the arch. Inspired by a strapping method used in plantarfascia injury, a design was prototyped and trialled with promising results.

  • Hi Lans, oh, I see - you have used the same method as me at my ski shoe project: using cast for a model ;-) I like your style in designing the products, good luck in future! Conny
