A single piece of carbon fibre wraps around the wearer’s foot like a twist of lime peel, hence the name, ‘Mojito’. Using 3D printing, injection moulding and scanning, Julian Hakes created this innovative design that supports the heel and the ball of the feet with no footplate in between. Hakes is one of a number of contemporary architects who sees the engineering possibilities in shoe design.
