IMAGINE SPACE TRAVELING

 
 

BACKGROUND

ROCKY SURFACE OF THE PLANET

ROCKY SURFACE OF THE PLANET

A pair of space shoes must conquer a rocky landscape once we get a chance to explore the unknown area.

The muscle loss is caused mainly by the different gravity when traveling or landing in different space.

 
 
 
 
 
MUSCLE LOSS

MUSCLE LOSS

Maintaining strong muscles is a huge issue in the outer space. Astronauts suffer from 10%- 30% reduced muscle mass, strength and performance in their missions.

 

FEATURE

ATTICUS features, first of all, two EMS( electrical muscle stimulation) cables for space traveler to improve the strength of legs, train their muscle in good shape, and heal their muscle in different environment of gravity. Secondly, the outsole features a huge and strong groove to fit rocky landscape while the space travelers are allowed to explore unknown areas. Thirdly, imagining the day traveling in the outer space, a pair of shoe which can stand for beings from the Earth is required. The pattern of the body combines two images, the galaxy and the earth, which makes the shoes so unique. Also, the rare sole expresses layers, which is inspired by lands and hills.
