    • Dile que no Research and Inspiration // Redesign the dance shoe for Latin dancing so that the heel is stronger and more abrasion resistant for the purpose of better ankle support and longer lasting shoes. Ideation Phase Final Concept
    • Dile que no // Just like running shoes, dancing shoes wear most quickly in the places where weight hits and shifts. Some shoes have harder tips that wear away slowly, while others have softer tips that wear quickly. When the heel corrodes, often it does so unevenly. The slanting of the heel makes the dancer more prone to injury and poor foot work. Research and Inspiration Ideation Phases Final Concept
    • Dile que no // In the ideation phase, I was looking to develop a heel made of exposed, anodized aluminum with a removable, double layer, suede heel tip. The aluminum will be strong, yet light-weight and the suede will protect the floor, wear away slower, and glide more easily than the typical plastic tips. The forms were derived from references to Calatrava architecture and to the embrace and linkages in salsa turn patterns. Research and Inspiration Ideation Phase Final Concept
