british-based biomechanical footwear brand fitflop presents a new shoe ‘zipflop’ designed by london-based designer ron arad. the covering is formed with two panels that fasten together to create a leather silhouette. the zipper gives the user the ability to personalize the item, allowing one to close or loosen the separate wings with different colors. found inside is the company’s ergonomic microwobbleboard midsole that provides a shock-absorbing heel strike, a soft center-foot platform and a firmer density toe off. its technology has been reported to enhance muscle loading and give relief from heel spurs, chronic back pain, osteoarthritis and restless leg syndrome.

  • How is the sole attached to the side panels? I only see half a zipper.

  • as with much of his work, VERY interesting – a complete re-thinking of a very basic item

    I’d like to try a pair on

    btw… who says they’re not available?
