“The design of sports” - Exhibition Playground - The design of sneakers, 2020

The design of a sport shoe is before all functional. Each sport has its own practice and types of gestures, and therefore needs specifi c and adapted shapes to achieve the best performance. Adapted to the profi le of the player (goalkeeper, defender, striker…), the design of a football shoe should contribute to the velocity of the user and allow precise ball control. Its sole grips on the ground providing stability and reactivity. The narrowness of the Formula 1 shoe avoids any potential discomfort with the pedals and offers a freedom of ankle movement. The thin sole allows a better contact feeling of the pedal. The climb shoe is also equipped with a thin sole, which goes up on each side for a better grip, becoming one with the foot.
