iF concept design award 2008

iF concept design award 2008

This project is about future soccer-footwear design. The functional aspects of this shoe are based on the latest knowledge of biomechanics and material. Especially the functionality of the waterproof material and elektroactive polymers have been considered. All underlying technologies are investigated and are feasible in the near future. The designed shoe is an exoskeleton unit, which allows the player to shoot faster, and more stability in the lateral and medial parts is achieved. This minimizes the risks of injuries. The water active cleats are another feature that improves the traction on wet playgrounds. The jury: good design that creates lifestyle.
