Winner, Personal Accessory Award: The All-Dai Shoe
Our closets and travel bags are full of too many shoes. This overproduction/overconsumption adds to the depletion of natural resources and speeds up the rate of pollution entering our air, water and land. Making footwear with better material choices is a good first step but making fewer shoes is the best solution. This is why I invented a minimal, convertible shoe, called the All-Dai, that has the ability to transform and be worn 4 different ways: A sneaker, sandal, mule, and open-toe sneaker - all in one! Simply remove the foam insole and place over the desired heel or toe portions to convert from a sneaker to a sandal or a mule. The All-Dai is vegan, plant-based and multipurpose.
