Staying indoors? No problem. Going out? Wear the same footwear and still, it won’t be a problem. G. D. Kim designed the KI ecobe, a pair of self-assembly modular shoes that can be customized for both indoor and outdoor use.

Kim wanted to help reduce or contribute to the elimination of sweatshops in Asia and thus came up with a modular shoe design that does not require much human labor. The KI ecobe is only manufactured when the end user has chosen a design.

There are plenty of customization options to choose from. Users can personalize the colors and patterns of the both the insoles and outsoles of the shoe. Plus, every part is interchangeable, allowing you to wear the shoes in different styles and seasons. Right now, the KI ecobe is available on Kickstarter for a campaign contribution of $69.
