For those who can't ever have too many shoes, these 16 modular components combine to make 256 different pairs.
The rigid thermoplastic pieces move independently as the foot flexes with no connecting bridge between the heel and ball of the foot, much like Julian Hakes' Mojito Shoe.
She plans to develop a range or jewellery and bags using the same concept.
Here are some more details from Sharon Golan:
My shoe collection originated from a minimalistic design concept, which at the same time allows for great variety.
The inspiration came from the terrestrial crust, which is shaped by internal pressure and stress- it cracks, swells, moves,
and responds to any changes, in the same way as the foot.
My set of shoes combines basic shapes, different techniques with industrial materials.
16 modular units are inspired by four models - parts of fruit peel, egg, earth, and shell.
These units are can be assembled using silicon-rubber bands, resulting in 256 different shaped shoes.
The project is accompanied by an interactive internet site (coming soon), showing the entire set of shoes.
