Foldable shoes will stop temple theft
Being a sinner I have always wondered how many shoes are nicked when left outside a place of worship. Not that I have been tempted but colleagues in the retail business are always amazed if not damn right frustrated at the number of shoes they loose to a band of anomymous kleptomaniacs who seem to want a to remove shoes from shop displays. Seems shoe thelft outside the temple is fairly common too. Nokil Singh is a student at the National Institute of Design (NID), Ahmedabad and he has come up with a set of designs for foldable shoes. For convenience outdoor mojdi style shoes can be folded and kept in a pocket, handbag, or just carried in the hand. The shies fold to no bigger than a handkerchief and are held secure with snap-buttons. Nokil likes the idea of foldable clothing and has already designed a foldable raincoat.
