A second skin that supports and protects the foot by Dutch designer Frieke Severs. ‘Footstickers’ was an independent graduation project at Nike EMEA.“There are many advantages of bare feet sporting: better motion control, more feeling in your feet and direct floor contact, etc. In this way you are more grounded and more aware of your feet and movements. Its also a good training for stronger feet. But a disadvantage is the risk of injuries, you can easily twist or slip.
The footsticker improves the activity and keeps thebarefoot feeling! The flexible material is like a second skin, the ‘skin /touch sensation’ is not disabled. The footsticker can give more grip, supportand protection. There are glues in development that are washable and make it asustainable product, there is also an adhesive (based on the proteins of a bluemussel) which continues to adhere during sweating. A trained foot is desirableor build-up a schedule for injuries to occur. Through a 3D foot scan thefootsticker can be adjusted on everyone’s personal list of requirements, feet andsporting choice.”
