THIS SLIP-ON SHOE IS CUSTOM MADE FOR YOUR FOOT, WITH A SINGLE WRAP-AROUND SURFACE

Article BY SARANG SHETH on Yanko Design. I WANT A PAIR!

The Walk Of Mind shoes are centered around a technology that allows users to get custom shoes made based on scans of their feet. Its slip-on design comes with a unique visual and tactile experience, appearing as well as feeling lightweight. The shoe’s light appearance can be attributed to the fact it looks quite like a feather or leaf wrapped around your foot, and the absence of the traditional thick sole found in shoes and sneakers makes it look/feel sleek and lightweight.
The slip-on is a combination of multiple materials, including the leather wraparound and an SLS 3D printed nylon sole that fits into it. The sole, designed specifically for each foot, comes with a bespoke pebbled surface that applies pressure on specific areas of the foot to relieve pressure, provide support, and give you a comfortable walking experience without the fatigue. What’s really unique about the Walk Of Mind footwear is the fact that its monosurface design and transitions seamlessly from sole to foot-cover. This means the shoe could essentially be flat-packed for more efficient shipping, or even have one shoe nested within another to create a much smaller package than with traditional footwear. Would be fun to see a video of a working prototype!
The Walk Of Mind shoes are a winner of the A’ Design Award for the year 2020.

SPRING FORWARD
Change your clocks tonight. Spring one hour forward. That is all.
WRITING PENS
Just got these pens at work. Love them. Erasable. I am an office supply junkie and proud of it!
If Pilot would like to provide me with pens and/or $, I would not decline. Here, you can get them at Amazon – now Amazon owes me $, too.
PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN
First, you should know that I primarily identify as a Democrat. Therefore, I’ve been watching the Democratic Primaries somewhat closely. Originally I caucused (yes, I’m from Iowa) for Mayor Pete. I was deeply saddened when he dropped out. Today I’ve learned that Sen. Warren has dropped out. It was inevitable, but it still made me sad to see the only remotely viable woman left in the race drop out.
Bernie has always been my second pick. But what I see now is the “Old Guard” of the Democratic party rallying around Biden because they don’t want a “socialist” to win the presidency. I’ve always felt that calling Bernie a Socialist was a misnomer as some of his proposed policies are socialist leaning only and not socialism in the strictest sense; but let’s not get our panties in a twist about the label. Bernie is not Karl Marx. I, like a lot of other Democrats will vote for whoever is going to beat Trump. But I wish people would understand that if they vote for Bernie, we won’t become a socialist nation.
