Along with the current trend for sneakers, ever more low quality sneakers are being sold. Weakness in design leads to a lifespan that hardly exceeds a year when worn on a regular basis.
UP-PART shoes are sold with separated sole and upper layers. Either can be replaced when damaged, hence limiting waste. As every part is user-detachable, it is also easier to recycle.
Using a grid and clip system with either straps or laces, they can be easily assembled and reassembled by the user. This design has opened substantial opportunities for customization.
UP-PART’s sole, upper, tongue, heel, straps and laces are all clip-able. This allows endless possibilities to restyle the shoes using a wide variety of tones and textures. This results in ever-changing and ever-lasting footwear which can be adapted to any mood, season, and style.
