SKINS Shoe Package / Packaging and carry system

SKINS Shoe Package
SKINS Shoe Package

SKINS shoebox looks at how the traditional shoebox can be repurposed into a more meaningful experience that transfers across multiple uses. It addresses the need to design with intentions of reusability and multifunctionalities that promote sustainability and reducing waste. The all-in-one design functions with multiple lives: a carry box, stackable shoe shelf, and foldout hanging wall organizer.

The package characteristics lie within the material choices: paperboard, illustration board and fabric. All are chosen for their recyclability and strength, which can transfer into a package of longevity, yet can be sustainably recycled.
