Stretch / Amphibious shoe

Stretch

Though high-tech has greatly improved the quality of our life, the weather is still unpredictable. When we go out it is sunny , but it can start to rain just for a while. To make it worse, we can’t keep a pair of overshoes everywhere.
Stretch is an Amphibious shoe design, it not only can be used as a pair of ordinary shoes in the sunny, but also a pair of overshoes in the rain. There is a flexible waterproof layer between its sole and upper which can be stretched out in the rain, and shrink back in the sunny. It has no effect on the appearance of a shoe, while provides its users an easier way to deal with the unpredictable weather.
