Shoes that never need to be replaced / Shoes

Shoes that never need to be replaced

An extremely humanistic design ,no matter what features your feet have, such as high instep,big toes, protruding bones,the shoes will try to fit your feet.
In this case, I used elastic materials, injected into each part, so that each part can be stretched and contracted freely.
This design solves the problem that the footwear size of growing teenagers grows too fast. But now I think we should pay more attention to Africa. Many African children don't wear shoes, let alone the problem of the rapid growth of young people's feet. So this material is made of recycled rubber, which is cheaper and has considerable mobility and plasticity.
