3DP High-Tops

Having started out printing insoles, Kegan Schouwenberg was intending to “digitize the physical world” and has come quite a ways since getting started. Having been a part of NBA All-Star Weekend and New York’s Fashion Week these shoes are really starting to generate some notice, and they definitely deserve it. Not only are these shoes able to be printed, but they are also robotic, with airbags that automatically displace pressure based on the movement and contour of an individuals foot.

Even the term “wearable” is getting redefined with this innovation, as it is only a matter of time before they start equipping standard footwear with a variety of sensors, lights, bells and whistles. Where the next great innovation in the shoe industry will occur, no ones know, maybe it will be living material socks or robotic shoes laces.
