3-D Printed Sneakers…

Heron Preston a streetwear designer has teamed up with Zellerfeld a technology company to produce the first 3D slip on sneaker. The sneaker is called HERON01. It has no seams, stitching, glue, not made of toxic glues or material, has no weak points, and can be fully recycled into a new shoe. The shoe itself is decorated with printed scales and textures resembling the feet of a heron bird while the sole combines the aesthetics of a claw with advanced footwear production concepts. They are easy to pull on and have a chunky sole with threading for traction. It has a prehistoric yet futuristic look and comes in a range of colors. New prototypes can be printed in hours as opposed to traditional avenues which take months. You can choose from standard sizes and use your iPhone to scan your feet at no additional cost. The program allows users to return their worn-out shoes for updated newer versions. For now, they are in the testing stage with 200 pairs being given out in order to receive feedback.
