Growing shoes / 04 Babies/Kids

Growing shoes
Growing shoes

The core concept is a sustainable, adaptable and responsible consumption of children's shoes design. To solve the consumption and waste of children's shoes caused by the rapid growth of children's feet (4 to 8 months), the design can make the infant own a pair of adaptive shoes that fit comfortably as the feet grow like wearing socks, and wrap inner boots with modular TPU support material to protect children's feet. These designs can make shoes suitable for children of different sizes and foot type.
