This objective was achieved based on studies that observe the relationship between sustainability and frugal innovation, with an emphasis on bricolage strategies, from a perspective of applicability in the footwear industry, as it is a sector with high environmental impact. <strong>Method:</strong> the research uses design science research, and made use of a field diary, for greater depth of understanding of the footwear environment, as well as secondary analysis of documents on the internet and transcribed interviews with the seven experts. <strong>Results:</strong> the study managed to propose two action artifacts, one of them a frugal and sustainable sneaker artifact, and, as a second action artifact, it realized the need for collaborative and constant action between universities and companies in the search for frugal and sustainable solutions, which can benefit both companies, through profitable results, and the university, through longitudinal research and production of articles. <strong>Conclusions:</strong> the footwear industry yearns for low-cost (frugal) innovations that are at the same time sustainable, and demonstrates capacity and interest in meeting social and political demands for sustainable actions; in order to achieve this, greater proximity to the university presents itself as a collaboration that can produce benefits for both, with side effects of positive impact on environmental initiatives, society, and government policies.</p> Ismael Rodrigo Specht Cristiane Froehlich Juliana Bondan Cristine Hermann Nodari Copyright (c) 2024-05-27 2024-05-27 28 3 e230228 e230228
