This project was completed as part of my Design Principles II class at RISD. For this assignment, we were instructed to choose research topics. The research topic I chose was "sports", specifically the sport of soccer. I observed and interviewed many different groups of soccer players in Rhode Island including club teams and casual players. Through this, I was able to identify the needs and areas of improvement to focus on for this project. I 3D modeled and eventually printed a sole plate out of flexible TPU filament as part of my deliverables. In addition to this I experimented with prototyping cleat form.
