Topless Shoes

---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To design a prototype topless shoes that require little to no effort to put on (no bending, tying) for individuals with back problems, arthritis, seniors, and other individuals with a disability that may prevent them from bending. Winner of the 2011 Red Dot Concept Design, Topless Shoes have no upper constrictions or bindings. The shoes consist of an elastic layer called the “muscle” which encloses the foot in a comfortable but firm grip. TITLE: Funky Shoe Style

Wear Ease Shoe Fasteners

The Wear Ease Shoe Fasteners are shoe lace fasteners designed for use by individuals with upper extremity, fine motor or neurological disabilities or arthritis.

D-rings facilitate closing and opening of the strap. Each fastener fits shoes with 2-3 eyelets, and shoes with 4-6 eyelets require two fasteners. SIZES: One size fits all. COLORS:
