I thought it was an elegant solution as the midsole/upper literally 'clips' on and off. (50% of the EVA midsole is visible - the protruding EVA 'pods' - while the other half of the EVA sits inside the upper) . Sadly the pair I bought failed early on due to the rubber ripping underneath (under normal light wear too - I never 'unclipped' the sole), but strangely I still love them.
this is a cool shoe, im not sure if its the shoe R was referring to but terra plana did a shoe called the Barack that had a interchangeable type sole with a TPU cage. I looked into doing other interchangeable sole ideas but the patent surrounding this nike shoe was a roadblock against doing anything involving interchangeable sole ideas, wish nike would do more with the patent.
