Shoes with a detachable sole to save space and increase options

Teres is a detachable sole that can be attached to three different styles of shoe. A simple but aesthetically striking zipper attaches the Teres sole to three different shoe tops, allowing the user to choose between sandals, ballet flats, or boots. Teres is designed to help shoemakers and customers save materials and space without reducing the variety of options available to them. The shoes fit easily inside a backpack or a bag, making them especially useful for travel.
