The fashion industry is going places, there’s no doubt about that. And now, an Israeli designer by the name of Daniela Bekerman has come up with a unique and distinctive design of shoes. This is definitely the next big thing for eco- conscious fashion followers as well as those who are on a budget. Entitled ze o ze, which means ‘this or that’ in Hebrew, these pair of shoes are a great choice for those who want variety and comfort, at a minimalist price.
The ‘ze o ze’ is a plain, flat shoe that can be purchased along with a number of components that can be affixed to the sole of the shoe. Daniela Bekerman stated that she created the shoe in order to allow for maximum flexibility for women who are in to wearing different designs at different places. Rather than buying five different pairs of shoes, the ‘ze o ze’ can easily transform in to five different pairs with the numerous components. The modular attachments that come with the shoe can add numerous heel sizes, change it from a ballet slipper to a lace up inspired by brogues, or a kitten heel pump. Ultimately, this ensures that shoe lovers get a lot more value for the money that they pay. For travelers, the ‘ze o ze’ is the perfect choice.
Rather than carrying five different pairs of shoes, travelers can just carry around one pair with the different attachments. At present however, the ‘ze o ze’ is still only a prototype. The designer, Daniela Bekerman is currently seeking out investors who’d be willing to further the prospects of this ingenious product.
There are numerous advantages of this as well. Allowing one product to turn in to two or three different ones means that costs will be cut, and less waste will be produced. Ultimately, this helps the environment, and appeals to people who are becoming more and more aware of the environment. At present, the concept is limited to shoes; what do you think can be used to transform next?
