This 3D-printed running shoe features a design that's printed in one piece and optimized for professional athletes with 3D scanning and other technologies. The unconventional spiked running shoe design is made with carbon fiber reinforced Windform material, which is commonly used in aerospace applications.
Even though the design has parts that are thinner than others, the outsole, midsole, pins and ribbing of the shoe are durable and easily customized as needed. The process of creating the innovative footwear design begins by scanning the foot for biomechanical analysis. After a 3D map has been created, the computer technology determines the best points where support can be provided to enhance an individual's athletic performance.
The upper portion of the footwear design is made from fabric that fits like a sock within the cage-like outer portion.
