‘Footwear Concepts’ is focused around bold and energetic shoe concept design with a focus on abstract and trend led trainer design. Through research into conceptual shoe design, I have enjoyed creating abstract silhouettes and challenging the adaptability of footwear. Colour and material curiosity have become the main focus of this project and the use of leather and wood have allowed for flexibility as well as durability. The project has been completely responsible through the use of leather offcuts and found material. The final concept design features a reworked trainer to combine decorative embroidery technique with functional detailing.
