Running Shoe Prototype

Recommended Posts

Guest J_Rod_TX

does anyone have experience creating cheap functional prototypes of shoes? i am designing a running shoe and i want to create some type of wearable mock-up which will test the features. the shoe cannot be made from a normal running shoe last, because it is designed to be shaped differently. i was thinking about carving my own crude last to use for fitting, patterning, etc..

any ideas?

Have you thought of using plaster to make your own last?

 

Alternatively you can start from an existing last and use car body filler and wood to add volume.

 

Good luck!

Hit up the core 77 boards..There's a bunch of footwear designers there that can probably help you out.
