Inspired by a post apocalyptic environment, and designed to be served as a meal for two
 Plaster mold to cast the soles of the boot
 First attempt to create a new material for the sole of the shoe, this recipe incorporated Kale (for fiber), Cabbage (fiber and color) and Agar-agar (flexibility)
 To create the upper part of the boot, I had to develop a complete different material - this recipe consisted of kale fibers, flax-seeds, and agar-agar 
 Development of material for upper part of boot
 Prototyping of edible sole
 Material development - test of strength, flexibility and taste!
 Rough prototype shape
 Dry run of the prototype
 I created eyelets from the same material and attached them with agar-agar and then sewed them on with 100% organic cotton thread
 I created a pattern for the upper part of the boot and sewed it with 100% organic cotton thread. In a post-apocalyptic scenario, people would be forced to eat their shoes for survival. Although the thread is not edible, it could be used for other purposes.
 Construction detail of the post-apocalyptic boot
 The Agar-agar worked very well for the sole of the boot, and also as an edible component
 Detail of eyelets
 Delicious and high in fiber!
