Increasingly, younger people get diabetes as well. However, a wide and cushioning shoe usually is not amongst the most attractive. In a current product development project we aim to design shoes for diabetics which combine an optimum of protection and comfort with an elegant and delicate appearance.

work in progress - due to confidentiality reasons details and images will only be published later in 2010.

In collaboration with Luzia Kälin und Mareike Gast.
