Extending the lifespan of footwear is the mission of Reality - The Future of Footwear. Constructed out of 3D printed, fully biodegradable nano-cellulose, the footwear has self-healing capabilities to extend its usable lifespan. Embedded with microvascular healing in the upper sole, and intrinsic healing in the outsole, the shoe is able to regenerate up to 50% of its total surface area. The shoes are designed to be locally manufactured to bring resources back to communities and deconstruct the complex global supply chains contributing to carbon emissions and inhumane working conditions.
