SEMBLE

A shoe to assemble, disassemble and reassemble

SEMBLE is a shoe concept that focuses on the interlocking of different elements and materials in a reversible connection. Instead of a sole and an upper sewn and/or glued together, it shifts into a combination of sole(s) and sock(s), offering a variety of ever new arrangements. This not only avoids problems of shoe recycling, but also invites consumers to creatively redesign and adapt their shoes to their individual wishes and needs. During the day comfortable with a good hold, at night elegant and fine. In summer airy and refreshing, whilst in winter cozy and warm.
