Israeli designer Lou Moria has used a vacuum-forming process to create pairs of plastic slippers that can be produced quickly and cheaply.
[The shoes can] be created from a single piece of recyclable rubbery plastic. [This responded to] research on cheap shoes, which often comprise many different materials and are assembled as part of a long process.
[In this instance] the designer creates the shoes using vacuum forming technology. A plastic sheet is heated until it is soft and draped over a mould inside the forming machine. …
Waste pieces of the material can be recycled and used to create more shoes, which are available in any colour.
