RUIT footwear

During my Masters in Footwear Innovation I developed a pair of slip-ons that had no cutting waste thanks to the shape of the shoe’s upper pattern. The panels of the shoe’s upper formed a rhombus shaped puzzle, eliminating unnecessary cutting waste. Successfully applied this no-waste concept to five different types of footwear construction. Maybe the best part was that all footwear was made of waste leather.
