Sportswear giant Adidas has taken the lead with a range of footwear made from Ocean plastics. Although they are currently out of most peoples' budget, the fact that the technology is there is really encouraging.
In this day and age, I believe that we have a shortage of young people aspiring to work in manufacturing. I have realised that my role is so important to the client as well as the factory. I am able to see what needs to move and what must be stopped. I represent more than the product. The glass wall of overseas manufacturing is foggy and I function as the translator and the assurer. Being a person in my mid-twenties, I have little experience but I have seen manufacturing from both sides of the table and my technical skills are valuable to the discussion because I can both learn and advise. I understand expectations on the client’s end but now I see the struggles on the manufacturer’s end as well.
I'm doing backflips. The Kitten heel is one of the most annoying trends ever to grace the pavements and I cannot believe it ever got a second round. While there will still be some carefully balanced Glamazons who are able to stomp around in this ridiculous excuse for a sole throughout winter, I can go back to marching with dignity, and without fear of toppling.
