Do you have too many shoes for your liking? Well now you can wear all types of shoes by buying just one pair. A crowdfunded company called Shooz has invented and released their customizable shoe line. Each shoe has the same sole and base structure whereas a skin can be zipped on to change footwear according to occasion.
This has invited a lot of criticism but Shooz remains positive of their inevitable success. “Shooz are made of a “Skin” and a “Sole which are detachable and interchangeable and allow you to create a style that’s perfect for you and perfect for any occasion. Whether you’re traveling, biking, running, working or just going out for a night on the town, you can carry around your flat-packed skins and customize Shooz to fit any occasion.” Say the company owners.
It is not as costly as it sounds too. The skins cost around $50 each and the prices rise up according to material. The base is presented in 5 different styles and starts at around $50 itself. In short, if one good pair of shoes costs you around $200, you could have three pairs of Shooz in that price. A worthy investment for sure.
This approach is new and has a lot of critics at the moment. But the practicality of their design will surely become famous sooner than later. It is safe to say that the idea of Shooz is gaining “footing”. Pun intended. Take a look at the demonstrative video below:
