Education shoe / An educative shoe

Education shoe

iF concept design award 2011

Many children often confuse which shoe goes on which foot. All the parents then say is “Put your shoes on the other way round.” Isn’t there a way to make education more fun? The design of these shoes helps children to more easily distinguish between the right and the left shoe and to have fun at the same time. When the shoes are put on properly, there is a picture of a boy giving a girl a kiss. If the boy and girl are back-to-back, however, then the shoes are the wrong way around. This is based on a program that teaches children to match cards to enhance their cognitive abilities. This concept has been adapted to this new shoe design.
