Redesigning habits

Design concepts can influence and suggest consumer behaviour by encouraging and facilitating the wearer to extend the life of their purchases.

Repair It Yourself (RIY) is a concept canvas shoe, designed to be as repairable as possible.

RIY utilises impermanent connections in order to facilitate easy component replacement and repair, while also providing the user with a repair kit so that wear and tear can be patched up.
