Running shoes on the market now are made of several different pieces that are cemented together with glue, making the shoe nearly impossible to recycle.

The rise in molded shoes seems to have started a new wave of leisure shoes but what if the shoes you slip on to take out the trash are the future of running shoes.

Runners talk about experiencing the "Flow" state when they run.

 

Flow characterizes the ideal life-cycle of the shoes, designed to transition smoothly from materials to functional shoes, back to usable materials, and eventually a shoe once again.

 

The segmentation of the shoe's parts, combined with the idea of flow, led to inspiration for the shoes from flowing parametric forms that convey speed.
