So maybe the hoverboards aren't happening, but it's ok: downloadable shoes are here! And not the brittle conceptual heels of high fashion, but totally dope [read: unbelievably ugly] sneaks. The trick is printing with Filaflex, a pretty cool material from Recreus that gives a lot more flex than standard options.
While they may look like chiseled plastic, they're surprisingly bendable—effectively combining the 3D printing community's penchants for terrible fashion and the needlessly DIY.
Not into the "Marty McFly × Lego" look? They do have other patterns too. It may not be the the powerlacing Nikes we've been promised, but they're a mentionable milemarker on the 3D printing highway. So choose your colors and warm up your printer because this futuristic footwear features the cool classic style of a half-melted Delorean.
