Imagine if one pair of shoes could match every outfit in the closet. San Francisco based fashion technology company Trooper America aims to provide the perfect solution by creating a fully interchangeable slip-on shoe.
Switch, designed in ultra-soft, premium cotton, allows wearers to instantly change the shoe’s color, style, fabric and look making for a versatile style that can match an endless combination of looks.
Created by brothers Ben Kaiser and Michael Kaiser, Switch employs patent pending technology that allows the wearer to simply zip on an interchangeable top in order to match different outfits. Starting with four top colors — red, blue, cream and gray — the tops can be applied to two different base colors: cream and gray.
This makes for an unlimited amount of possibilities which, according to the creators, means that “one pair of shoes could match 1,000,000 different outfits, instantly.”
