This Is A Shoe

There really isn’t much to say about this, other than to affirm that it is, indeed, a shoe. It’s architect-turned-shoe-designer Julian Hakes’ creation, the Mojito Shoe. It is the result of his exploring the idea of how a shoe would look if it were to be constructed and thought of as a bridge. “Where do the forces go? How do we introduce new materials and manufacturing techniques?” And so on… The Mojito Shoe was the result, and we have to say it appears to be a fine example of engineering.
It costs £125, or about $200 and comes in a variety of colors. If you’re wondering what it looks like on someone’s foot, hit the jump.

Discounts, Discovery & Delight: 3Ds for Retail Success

In fashion and retail, Dopamine is the drug of choice. Technically, Dopamine is the neurotransmitter of “desire.” Dopamine leaps across synapses in our brain to control our reward and pleasure centers. It enables craving. It induces repeat behaviors. It makes us want more. Therefore, it is in our best interest to create products and experiences which induce the release of dopamine in our consumers. We could use some dopamine for ourselves, too. In our fashion and retail world, there are three primary stimuli, "3Ds," we can control to deliver hits of dopamine: Discounts, Discovery and Delight.
