Every once in a while you might come across an object at the end of its lifespan which poses a waste disposal conundrum. The 'Designed for Deconstruction' shoe ensures that footwear may not fit this category of complex trash, enabling the owner to disassemble each part for appropriate and responsible discarding.

Xandy Peters has conceived a pair of high-tops that resembles the Frye, Clark's and Gourmet styles with a plastic heel, sole and toe, a foamy insole and a leather sheath. By placing the arch support into the soft sock, and that into the galosh-like base, the 'Designed for Deconstruction' shoe is easily fixed together with a long shoelace string. Just as easily, the loafers can be taken apart and recycled, reused or discarded more efficiently. Stats for Eco-Friendly Disassembling Footwear Trending: Older & Average
