Emma Mendonca - Nike Resonator
The shoe becomes an experience, stimulating the senses.
Footwear to make you move.
Inspiration for this concept is derived from the street dance scene and how dancers 'feel' the beat, rhythm and resonance and translate it into the physical movement of dance.
Challenging the function of the trainer, the piece I have designed is a trainer encompassing 'Bass Amplifying Technology' using electro stimulation currents in specific reflexology points of the sole to create a sensation through the body. It encourages the wearer into movement.
No longer a running shoe, the shoe becomes an experience, stimulating the senses, it's visceral and goes right through the body. Sole to soul creates a connection and generates an intense sensation to the wearer, becoming more than just a trainer.
