Drop.The.Knot aims to address why the most culturally accepted way to fasten a shoe was with laces, such a primitive way to tighten leather or textiles around the foot. The project set out to devise a way to revolutionise how shoes are secured and interacted with by the user.

The final design addresses poor manufacturing methods, carbon offset, material decisions, recyclability and usability. A sneaker, comfortable enough for everyday use, stylish enough for any environment, and supportive enough for light physical activity, that automatically changes and forms to the users foot by using energy produced from the human body.
