Deft Chinook | Marc V-Brosseau (UPDATED)

Marc recently added much more information about his project, detailing everything from the target audience, development snap-shots and a couple more beauty shots that really show how dynamic this project is. See more, below.

The Deft Chinook concept by designer, Marc V-Brosseau is ‘adaptable winter footwear for the urban adventurer constantly changing environments, from the comfortable indoors to the harsh outdoors. Active millennial urbanites aren’t scared of the climate, but require footwear capable of keeping up with a hectic lifestyle, while insuring appropriateness of style and comfort.’ – Marc V-Brosseau

Featuring everything from a Gore-Tex Ripstop weave upper, nylon webbing and Airprene to, most notably, a YKK ‘Aquaguard’ water repellent zipper, which is used to attach the removable hightop, outer bootie, to the low top, inner shoe. What this does is allow the user to switch between high and low top versions of the same shoe to best adapt to their current environment.

Check out Marc’s super intriguing concept in the video below, and make sure to head here to vote for his concept in the 2015 Carleton Industrial Design Thesis Competition.
