This shoe system would consist of soles with a narrow leather
flange around the perimeter punched on a regular interval with
holes for shoelaces. The uppers would similarly be perforated
with a matching number of holes.
To assemble, simply (if tediously) lace up.
The idea is that it would
be a retrofit for uppers on decrepit
soles and "on-special" new shoes with great soles and
incredibly ugly uppers. Or whenever else that footwear
modularity is desired.
The original design of this shoe aparrently had a zip to seperate the sole and upper, though I can't find a picture - the design seems to have been changed very quickly to a more normal construction. [pocmloc, Jun 02 2011]
||[+] I really like this! It can be quite unique - fashionwise- to create all kinds of shoes!
