The aggressive sessions of another design thinking is in the afternoon of Friday, October 5th, and in this short and 2 hours class period, the tutor designated us to form a new group in order to create an “New Shoes”, which you never seen it before in the current shoes industries. Basically, in the half of the course times, we began to run along with times, chase different ideas from interviewing at various students who stayed in the campus , and finding effective resources and evidences.
To be candid, the group works are consists of various decisions, for instance: it requires problem solving, firmness decision making, and effective communication , and in the end, we had invented a unique shoes that not only suitable for customers but also created a brand new experience for shoe users.

In my opinion, this kind of question will inspire the designer to explore and challenge the shoes industries.
