Initial sketch and pattern -
Initial sketches involved exploring the possibility of using multiple leather pieces for the upper, but I decided to go with a single double-sided piece for simplicity.
Analysing wear pattern and 3D printing midsole-
I mapped out wear patterns on the outsole as it was the most common area of impact. This was further developed into cushioned 3D printed midsole (using Grasshopper), for a softer impact across the sole.
