With 3D printing on the rise, the art of crafting bespoke footwear is once again becoming popular—as it stands, 3D-printed footwear is no longer unheard of, yet JS Shoes is introducing something new.

JS Shoes are now being introduced on Kickstarter, aiming to collect funding for its customizable lightweight shoes created with 3D knitting technology. With these processes, JS Shoes is able to provide mass customization, while also lessening the production of waste. The shoe itself is made of a knitted upper piece, an outer sole and an interior cushion, a design that does away with any need for a mid-sole or stitching.

Considering that many big-name sneaker brands are now producing shoes made with knit material, JS Shoes is ahead of the game for offering personalization, style and sustainability.
