SENIOR THESIS CCA, 2020.

MY GOAL WAS TO REDUCE THE IMPACT ON ATHLETES JOINTS WHILE ELEVATING THEIR TRAINING EXPERIENCE. 

AN OUTSOLE DESIGNED TO PROVIDE PROPER TRACTION AND CONTROLLED INSTABILITY FOR INCREASED DIFFICULTY.

MIDSOLE DESIGNED TO ABSORB IMPACT AND REDISTRIBUTE FORWARD MOMENTUM. 

ONE OF THE LEADING CAUSES OF INJURY TO ATHLETES IS OVERTRAINING.

POLYCARBONATE SADDLE THAT DISTRIBUTES PRESSURE ACROSS YOUR FOOT AND PROVIDES STABILITY AND BALANCE BY SUPPORTING THE ARCH OF YOUR FOOT.

SPLIT MIDSOLE TECHNOLOGY, GEL PODS FUSED INTO 3D PRINTED PARAMETRIC CASINGS.

EVA FOAM OUTSOLE WITH NON SLIP TEXTURE AND A TRACTION DESIGNED TO HAVE CONTROLLED INSTABILITY.

TPU KNIT UPPER FOR BREATHABILITY ABD STRUCTURE. 

AREAS OF IMPACT WHEN RUNNING ON HARD SURFACES.

ELASTIC STRAP FOR EXTRA SECURITY.

1. MIDSOLE 

-ABSORBS IMPACT AND KILLS FORWARD MOMENTUM. 

2. OUTSOLE 

- DEADENING WITH TRACTION THAT PROVIDES CONTROLLED INSTABILITY.

3. UPPER

- BREATHABLE AND ALLOWS FOR FULL RANGE OF MOTION.

NOT FOR RACE DAY. 

THE MIDSOLE IS DESIGNED TO ABSORB THE IMPACT AS YOUR FOOT STRIKES THE GROUND AND DEADEN THE FORCE WHICH RELIEVES STRESS FROM YOUR JOINTS WHILE ALSO KILLING FORWARD MOMENTUM WHICH INCREASES THE DIFFICULTY OF THE TRAINING.
