Why do we manufacture products for eternity,
which are sometimes only worn one season? Conventional shoes are made of materials
which are never degradable.
Their components are glued together, can therefore not be recycled. My idea is to invent a modular sneaker set based on the building block principle! 
made from regional and compostable materials. The set is completely made without plastic and the individual elements are not glued together. 
so they can thus be exchanged and freely combined. The form follows the function: On my sneaker, the strap runs underneath the sole
and thus holds all the components of the shoe without gluing together. My modular shoe proves:
it is possible to do without plastic completely and regional resources: like dandelion and hemp With your support I would like to further optimize shape and material properties
and expand product marketing. With this project we can revolutionize the shoe industry TOGETHER.
