The shoe that takes care of your belongings.
Last Friday was the shoe Friday. We looked at shoes, many shoes and I wondered myself: how often do you look after someone’s shoes? Not to often, as matter of fact. I might cast a glance if a special event is occurring, just to get some feedback of the people around me, but usually I am not paying attention at what kind of shoes people wear (nobody pays attention, I guess).
In The Shawshank Redemption, the protagonist of the film – Andy Dufresne – had to clean and shine every day the warden’ shoes (one of his duties). In the night when he escaped, was wearing the warden’ shoes that he’d cleaned and shined so many times. No guardian or prisoner had noticed that, because people usually do not look after someone’s shoes.
On Friday, in contrast, we really had to look after many shoes in order to stimulate our creativity and come up with something innovative. People were wearing normal shoes almost a stereotype: men – normal trainers and women – sandals.
But one of my colleagues had a great idea: to transform a usual shoe into a very useful and functional shoe, with a little pocket, where you can put your keys, coins etc.
Indeed, was a great idea, as it spares you from loosing or wasting time looking for your keys.
Isn’t that great?
Looking forward to forthcoming challenges!
