3D Printed Shoes

3D Couture: Shoes Printed For Your Feet

I'm inspired by fashion in general, but when you add a geeky twist, I get really excited. My latest obsession? 3D printed shoes. You know 3D printing — it's where you "print" an actual object layer by layer. You can make furniture, household items, nearly anything with a 3D printer.

Now, designer Naim Josefi has created a pair of sustainable 3D-printed shoes that fit the wearer perfectly. How does it work? A scanner analyzes your foot, then the dimensions are sent to a 3D printer to craft your 3D "couture" kicks. It seems you'll need some strong ankles to prevent from pulling a Gaga in these heels, but it's a pretty impressive process that allows you to enjoy the perfect fit (no more band-aids or blisters!), while you save the planet at the same time — the shoes are made from sustainable materials.

Still wondering how the heck these shoes are made? Check out the demo video after the break.
