How do you make running in hot weather a better experience? Brian Best designs a shoe to stay cool. With innovative materials and intelligent geometry, he designed a sole that uses a unique heat shield foil material to block heat from underneath. (Think pavements and sidewalks.)
Read how Brian was inspired by cactus at the San Diego Zoo to design this sole for the New Balance Vazee Breathe. See how he used Grasshopper to generate variations for the midsole and outsole to refine the design -- a process faster than building in 3D with traditional methods.
