zipoot / shoes

zipoot

The soles of your shoes can now be freely separated or combined using a zipper. A pair of shoes can be used in diverse ways, simply by changing soles. They can be used for fashion, but in most cases, people tend to buy new shoes when the soles wear out, even if the upper parts of the shoes are still good. In general, people tend to choose shoes that can be easily abandoned and bought again. But with this small change in the manufacturing process, you can reduce environmental pollution and make a contribution to solving the shortage of shoes among children in Third World countries.
