New Continent/Sole Design / Sole

New Continent/Sole Design

The rising of sea levels caused by global warming has become increasingly serious. The soles inevitably show different degrees of wear and tear after a period of walking or running. The shape of continent would gradually appear from the sea surface of the sole. We aim to emphasize the contribution of people who choose to walk instead of driving to prevent the rising of sea levels by this emotional design under our shoes and encourage people to live a low-carbon life-style.Moreover, the wear and tear of shoes of different people varies a lot depending on different walking habits. The shapes of coastline appear variously on different soles.
