Gathering Shoes

For the final outcome of this project I am going to need a lot of shoes so I have got 2 of my own pairs of shoes and also 4 pairs off of my friends and a pair off of my brother. When I got the shoes off of them I asked them a few questions so I would have a basic idea on how to produce the designs on their shoes.

I asked each person the following questions:

  1. What is the most prominent memory you have while wearing these shoes?
  2. Can you describe this memory to me and anything specific that stands out?
  3. If you can’t think of a specific memory is there a journey you remember going on with these shoes that you can describe to me?

I only asked these 3 questions for now as I wanted the designing with them to be an ongoing process where I can get their feedback as I go through the design stages.

Here are the answers to the questions for each person in note form and also my answers for my pairs of shoes (not all answered question 3 as it was not necessary) –
