But Sharon Golan, a design student from the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem, has turned that thought into reality. SOUNDBITE: Sharon Golan, developer of modular shoe, saying (English): The idea was you buy four pieces, this is the amount of pieces you need to create one shoe. But if want to change your look you can buy only one extra part and then it changes the whole look of the shoe." Golan's first collection is made of recycled thermo plastic sheets, with flexibility provided by silicone rubber bands . As an admitted shoe addict, Golan says she created the line to satisfy her own desire for new shoes. SOUNDBITE: Sharon Golan, developer of modular shoe, saying (English): "I think its a shoe that every woman slash girl (will) want to have, because we want to change all the time, we want to show that we are innovative and we wear the next best thing and that we change all the time, and we are not stuck in the one fashion item.
