Woven in a pliable meddle of mesh and lace-like texture, the XYZ Shoes created by Earl Stewart for Mocovote are, as the designer aptly describes on the product page, "an exploration into design pluralism... a vehicle that expresses the future of design."

Because the process of creating these shoes involves a 3D scan of the foot, each pair is perfectly customized to the wearer's sizing, making them incredibly comfortable and accessible to those with uncommon foot sizes. Podiatrist consultation ensures the sole provides stability and proper alignment for the individual while the flexible material bends and stretches with every step.

Amazingly styled, the XYZ Shoes by Earl Stweart are an exemplary model of how technology and design go hand in hand.
