Abstract

Inspired by the concept of “sustainability†and based on our previous shoe design made of a green tea-based biodegradable cellulose fiber mat as a leather alternative material, we further challenged ourselves to implement cradle-to-cradle design approach into the shoe design process. We especially focused on sustainable material selection for different layers of the shoe structure and simple shoe pattern development using a zero waste approach. Our bio-shoes also considered much attention to wearers' functional and aesthetic desires. We chose a contemporary look for the bio-shoes, which can complement current college male students' desires and needs in their urban campus life.
