IMPACT Shoes – New footwear for a sustainable society


During the 5 days workshop, students were asked to create a comfortable, sustainable and safe footwear that can be eco-sustainable by exploiting the Wrap&Go technology developed by Vibram. Students were asked to identify a target user and a context of use in which the footwear will be used, such as Outdoor Sport, Indoor Sport, Lifestyle, etc. From an initial phase of research and development of an area of opportunity, students then moved on to the development of the product and its details (finishes, communication elements, etc.).


Activity with the company

It was possible to work in contact with Vibram, a world leader in the production of soles for footwear. The projects developed by the various working groups, made up of a maximum of 3 people, have explored eco-sustainable solutions until reaching a product design proposal capable of combining innovation, sustainability and comfort for specific target groups and specific contexts of use.
