Marloes ten Bhömer is an experimental shoemaker who is exploring new possibilities in fabrication and fitting provided by 3D-printing. Rapidprototypedshoe, shown here, is breated through sintered plastic plumer, into the shape of one's foot. A fantastic solution if, like many, you're two feet aren't exactly the same size.
If 3D shoe printing takes off, we wonder other materials could be used to create a shoe that can stretch, bend, and be repaired? Bhömer has just started to address that by designing a shoe that comes apart in layers, allowing for different material properties and easy replacement of worn-out parts.
