Awarded joint 3rd position for my bespoke shoe
For the Bespoke Orthopaedic Design Award the students were given a last which they had to examine and then create a customer whose problems the last represented and which for whom they would design for. Again the challenges were diverse from a ballet dancer with hypermobility to a stunt man who had damaged his ankles in a fall.

A highlight for me was Tabasam's ultra-wearable, super-cool skater style boot for his stunt man (third from left).
