Design Problem:

Systems Involved:

65% of women in the US wear size 14 or above, yet running brands primarily design products for a thin, male body ​

that fits the image of what a runner looks like. Any Body acknowledges and embraces the athletes who don’t fit that mold​

Skeletal, muscular and integumentary systems

Useful Resources:

  • Research papers around footwear fit and the effect on performance​

  • 3D foot scanning and anthropometric measures​

  • Working with a last maker to develop a relevant last
