After filming and editing I compiled my footage into my final user video.
Final Display Model
Moving onto my final display shoe I resin printed the sole to get a nicer finish to resemble the high standard that can be reached with 3D printing. I kept aside the nicest upper I had so that the shoe will be the nicest of my models.
I spray painted the sole black before taping and filling with bio foam.
For the inner sole I used a piece of merino fabric joined to a layer of more rubbery bioplastic, with a touch of branding.
Then again using linen twine stitched on the final upper.
Final Shoe Model
After just 2 weeks in compost this was the result
The cuts were a result of the wire I used to make sure I knew where the foam was. Each different density soaked up water so the different types were unrecognisable. There was a thin layer of mold breaking down the foam but had a while to go, this was a promising sign that it does take some work to degrade so they wont fall apart on your feet.
