ToplessShoes Concept
ToplessShoes Concept by Zhao Xiaoliang, Han Like, Liu Peng, Meng Qingbao, Ren Mingjun, Yang Xiao, Chen Xuan & Lin Lin designed to bring ease to the activity of putting on one’s shoes. Not like opening a bottle or pressing a button, putting on shoes involves your movement of the whole body. Pertaining to most people, it is an easy task. In case part of the body is actually injured or causing pain, nevertheless, things can get hard. A person may have got trouble bending down, for example, or even one’s hands may be less flexible compared to normal. Whereas shoes typically have an opening only in the ankle area, Topless Shoes are open along their entire length. To put these people on, the wearer basically has to step in them. An elastic layer (termed the actual “muscle” by the designers) parts underneath the force of the foot, and then folds back to enclose the foot. An elastic structure is hidden inside this specific soft layer.
