Århundredets sko kommer i samlesæt

Århundredets sko kommer i samlesæt
23 milliarder par. Så mange nye sko bliver produceret hvert år. Uden noget system for, hvad der sker med skoene efter brug. Linda Egtved Olesen udfordrer den enorme ressourceudfordring med sit skodesign. En variation af ECCO-såle danner basis for skoen, og disse kombineres med en række forskellige overdele og udskiftelige fór, så én sko kan varieres i et væld af stilarter – fra støvle til sneaker til fashion-statement. Samlesæt-konceptet gør det nemt at kassere en færdigbrugt del, hvilket gør genbrug mere håndterbart.

The Footwear of the Century as DIY
Roughly 23 billion pairs. So many new pairs of shoes are produced every year, without any system or concept for what happens to the shoes after use. Linda Egtved Olesen’s footwear design aims to address this enormous resource challenge. A variation of the ECCO soles forms the basis of the shoe, and these are combined with multiple tops and interchangeable linings, so one shoe can be converted into a host of styles – from a boot to a sneaker to a fashion statement. The assembly concept makes it easy to discard one part that is no longer viable, which makes recycling more manageable.
