Shoe design

Contest Closed
Description:
I am looking to explore the idea of "reinventing" shoes. I'm looking to create a shoe that turns from a heel to a flat. In order to do so i need a mechanism for the heel to flip out and lock into place from a groove on the sole of the shoe. The heel itself would be based on a lever where you can push the heel into a groove of the bottom of the shoe to make the shoe a flat. Then click it out using a very simple unlocking system on the sides of the shoe ( a bit like when you unclick the lid of a calpol bottle pressing on both sides) to make it into a heel.
Wants:
Ideally what i am looking for is a mechanism that locks and unlocks a heel into place using 2 buttons on both sides of the shoe to be pressed to release. The heel must have a 90 degree flexibility and support the weight of a woman when clicked into place. To bring the heel into its groove again to make a shoe a flat, i would like to use the weight of a person to press down at an angle onto the heel a bit like a spring (using their feet as a force) in order to lock the heel back in.
Ask for Sample:
A sample would be great with a paper copy with a diagram showing how the sample was assembled together.

Yes you can. Please remember the material must be durable, thin and strong to hold an adults weight

Industrial Safety Glove Design
TPR (Thermoplastic Rubber) Protection Zones for Work Gloves We are an industrial work glove manufacturer and one of our main products are gloves with TPR moulded zones which are applied to the back of gloves (either sonic/heat or sewn) to provide protection from knocks, bumps, bangs, compressions etc. Gloves are widely used in the offshore Oil and Gas sector along with mining and automotive sectors. The TPR zones are primarily to protect the fingers, knuckles and metacarpals within the hand – see attached image. We have several mould designs already, attached are two samples TPR1 and TPR2 and we are looking at a new mould also attached named Karbonhex which is based on an Hexagonal pattern/design – the inner hexagonal design is okay but the actual outer/outline needs a redesign to also make it more hexagonal…. This is as much about esthetics as functionality!
