Imprint / Pattern of slipper sole


The glaciers in both Antarctic&Arctic are rapidly thawing at a horrible rate of hundreds of billions of tons per year. Simultaneously the innocent penguins living the Antarctic are facing a survival crisis.Now Imprint redesigned concave patterns of penguin and glacier on the bottom of slippers. When people tread around with the wet slippers on, the soles of slippers can leave the patterns of penguin and glacier on the ground. As time goes by, pattern left by the liquid gradually evaporate away. It reminds us to give more heed to the global climate changes and also urges us to adopt a sustainable lifestyle as soon as possible.
