2018 pensole world championship entry

I had a pretty clear image in my head of what I wanted once I started brainstorming. I knew that I wanted the macaroni like bubbles to be the focus of the shoe and for it to come up high on the ankle, however I still had to experiment a lot to figure out the rest of the form and how it would go together.

I decided the sole should be fluid to match the organic knitted upper. I also had to experiment with how the actual knit would look and where the  location of the cords. The upper right shoe is close to the final but was missing something so I added a gap between the sole and upper for the final shoe.
