Modified Draft

We met with our mold shop again today and were able to see a model of our rubber outsole. They make these models so that we can check the dimensions and look of the finished product in full scale and in 3D. We made a small change to the tread as we saw it - we added a bit of an angle to the tread blocks, known as draft, to allow it to release easier from the mold when it's completed. Other than that, we were very happy with the way the outsole looked, and we can't wait to see it on Friday.
