I have explored and determined the Origami structure that I am going to apply on my shoe upper.
In addition, I rethink the composition of my design features, based on my experiments related to the midsole structure and the usability of the shoes.
Searching for the proper strap components to uplift the functionality and usability of the pleating structure.
Meanwhile, I continued the development upon the midsole structure, altering the composition of the laser cut pieces laying on X,Y axises.
Applying Origami structure upon the fabric, which is the part activating the flattened mechanism, include the “paper to fabric transformation.”
The full scale prototype initiated in the fourth week. All the models primarily focus on making the foldable fabric and finalizing the midsole part.
