My project began from a study focusing on the place of shoes in Judaism. According to Judaism, the shoe is an object that connects the person to the ground on which he stands. In addition, the shoe symbolizes person’s connection to spirituality. Studying these ideas led me to engage in natural contact and to create a locking experience that softens the treading and creates a connection between the person, the shoe and the ground. Thus, I started developing shoes that are designed and made of layers. The shoes combine both digital and traditional technological planning, which aspires to harmony among all. As part of the project I created shoes in which the hierarchy between the inside and the outside is blurred, the shoe is the limb, the sole and the insole, and together they are connected and hidden. The shoe design process contains elements taken from textures of soil, rocks, and geological layers. The shoes consist of three printed parts using SLS technique (nylon 12) and parts of the leather are adapted to them using a wet modeling technique. The layers are hand sewn together, designed to connect the layers to each other and create the mechanical strength required by a geometric lock.
