Paper Shoe Pt 3 – Triangles

Part 1 | Part 2

We finally figured out how to make the sole of the shoe be strong yet still be flexible with the foot. The answer:

Triangles.

Lots and lots of triangles.

Our plan was to weave them together like this:

   

Afterwards we could then shape it to be a sole. The structure is very sound and doesn’t need glue so the folded triangles have room to move and be flexible. Once we find a way to bind both ends so that the triangles won’t slip out of place we will have a great structure that is also aesthetically pleasing.
