Just Do It, Yourself

The Creo Shoe Concept focuses on user integration by allowing the wearer to become a part of the production process.  The footbeds, shoelaces, outer soles, and sewing pattern are sent to the user in a leather envelope that doubles as the inner part of the shoe. I am all for anything DIY or that supports local commerce and I love that the wearer can stitch the inner shoe themselves or hand it over to a local shoemaker for tailoring. The Creo’s real value is knowing exactly where it came from.

The Creo Shoe Concept is a 2011 IF concept design entry.

Designer: Jennifer Rieker

    My continuing challenge with self-build shoes is the market. Who wants them? I've seen similar concepts three times and have yet to see articulated the demographic that would be interested outside of the designer themselves. Anyone?
