This project was inspired by the function and specifics of biomimicry. It is specifically inspired by a lions paw and how it functions in nature.

FIRST PROTOTYPES

For these prototypes, I tried to find some similar materials that help lion paws function in nature. First I created a slimy fat texture inside the shoe and later found the solution in gel balls.
