Awesome work. I especially like the added straps and lacing in the other shoe designs (not shown here). I'd like to see more projects featuring added details, like finishing, assemblies, fastening and mixed materials. That demonstrates much more skill development and will provide more variety and function to inspire people.

techfortrade, (a London-based charity) are trying to explore ways in which 3D printing can be used for social benefit, therefore we have launched the 3D4D Challenge, a competition for people with transformational ideas that could leverage 3D printing technologies to deliver real social benefits in the developing world, with the winner receiving $100,000 to help implement their idea.

I would love to start a discussion on ways in which 3d printing could help to relieve poverty in developing countries.

Also, if you are interested in applying for the competition, you can enter here or contact me at
