Metamorphosis / Metamorphosis

Metamorphosis
Metamorphosis

When the child is growing up, the feet grow faster than any other part of his body, which requires the shoes to be changed frequently although the shoes are almost brand new. This can be a trouble for their mothers and also cause a lot of waste.
"Metamorphosis" is when the shoes become small, people can tear up a layer insole, which increases the space inside the shoe. Then, the problem for unfitness of the shoes can be solved. The inspiration came from the butterfly's metamorphosis, it means the growth of life, and this transformation comes from nature, and from our exploration to the growth.
