Bachelor of Design with Honours
Split sole shoes are used in dance to allow for better control over the foot and improved arch flexibility. However, they are out-dated and dancers don’t wear them.
Soul Flex is the split-sole dance sneaker re-designed for Hip Hop. Hip Hop is a medium for self-expression, so my design is centred around a lacing and strapping system that allows the dancer to personalise the look and fit of their shoes.
