The A Wrong Mongrel collection is comprised of eight experimental leather boots for men. Each of them has been uniquely enhanced with 3D-printed soles. As though inspired by the look of coral reefs, the shoes are enveloped with textured designs that add a huge grunge factor to each. It was only a matter of time before men's footwear had fun with this technology. 3D-printed shoes for women have been gaining popularity quite a bit over the last few months.

Designed by student Ross Barber as part of the Graduate Expo of the London College of Fashion, the soles in the A Wrong Mongrel collection were crafted out of nylon. Due to the cost of the materials and production, the footwear will remain in its prototype stage for now. Stats for Coral-Like Shoe Soles Trending: Older & Mild
