Is the 3D Printed “DESIGNED TO WIN” the World’s Fastest Shoe?

French-born engineer and designer Luc Fusaro, a student at the Royal College of Art in London, claims he has invented the world’s fastest running shoe. Using 3d scans, the “Designed to Win” shoe is designed around the unique shape of a runner’s foot, weighs 96 grams, and  it can improve performance by as much as 3.5% (about .35 seconds in a 100-meter dash).  The shoe is not designed for long distance but for sprinter’s that time is the difference between silver and gold.  Unfortunately it will not be available for the upcoming Olympics but Fusaro hopes to have it ready for the 2016 games.
