Several features were implemented to address common
issues using hiking shoes.
• Quickly adjustable lacing system
• Formfitting straps
• Stable and flexible platform for protection
• Aggressive tread patterns for easy grip on wet and dry terrain
• Attachable outer sole for more protection
Refined inner and outer soles were made based the quick study models. Sole's pattern was modified to give more supports in wheel and toe areas, and flexibility in the arch area.
The attachable outer sole is designed based on inner shoe's specs. Outer sole attaches onto inner shoe through locking mechanism.
MAKING OF UPPER
The challenging part of making an upper shoe as intended designs were using the right materials and achieving the correct form.
After making a mold and covering it up with a blank material, the design was drawn onto it to make a template. Then, the template was used to cut out the materials to sewed up. After different parts were sewn together, inner sole and the upper mesh were assembled together.
