This weekend, I gave myself the assignment to make quick mock-ups over lasts. The idea was to refrain from judgement and see if any ideas came of it. It was a timid start, but maybe in the future I’ll have the courage and imagination to get more wacky.
This does nothing for me.
Excuse me, my 1980s are showing.
Now this concept, I like!
The idea is that while some of the straps are functional and hug the foot, the others escape beyond the boundaries of the body. Ignore the holes in the sole; it was just some old piece of leather I saved for practicing with on occasions just like this.
Here’s roughly what that sandal would look like on. Next, I’m going to make a prototype! I think I’ll make the outer straps even longer to exaggerate their swoop. Stay tuned.
