LZR / Parkour Shoe

LZR
LZR

LZR is a shoe developed for Parkour, a sport dedicating to the passion for the art of moving. Nowadays Parkour is being understood as a creative way of exploring our own body, overcoming boundries and a statement concerning the proceeding privatisation of urban space.
It combines sequences of animal movements, that are adjusted to the urban concrete jungle. Combining parkourŽs philosophy with extreme physical performance requirements - like flexibility, agility, grip and lightness - i saw a demand for a new product. It has further a self-packing function inspired by the amradillo lizard, for space saving and comfortable transportation.
