Pregnancy footwear / Slap wrap & magnet buckle

Pregnancy footwear
Pregnancy footwear

In the stage of being pregnant, a pregnant woman may have many changes in her feet such as over-pronation and swelling. Meanwhile, due to abdominal weight gain, her center of gravity will be shifted and her posture will be affected too.
Therefore, my design is trying to come up three solutions to solve three different problems: 1,insert different insoles with different thickness as time goes by, solving the problem of foot swollen; 2, bring "negative heel" technology to help pregnant women practice posture and stand straight; 3. use the "slap wrap" as the belt with magnet buckles, allowing them to fasten their shoes without bending over.
