This sustainable basketball sneaker has been conceptually designed by Dennis Johann Mueller as a footwear style that would provide avid athletes with a modular alternative to traditional varieties. The sneaker is imagined with detachable parts that could be swapped out when required or to adjust for the different needs of athletes. The entire shoe is held together using a cord locking system that holds things in place without glue for an increased attention to product longevity.
The sustainable basketball sneaker imagines the future of the footwear industry that eliminates styles that need to be completely replaced when one portion fails for a more eco-friendly ethos. The sneaker also enables the replaced component to be recycled instead of heading straight for the garbage.
