New Zealand Based Designer’s XYZ Shoe Mixes 3D Printing & Traditional Materials

New Zealand based designer and Shapeways user Earl Stewart has designed the XYZ Shoe using a combination of 3D Printed Nylon and traditional shoe making materials such as leather and laces.

Shapeways 3D Print Shoe XYZ

We have seen a number of 3D printed shoes hit the runway along with a few prototype sports shoes from Nike and New Balance but these are the first to use 3D printing in a more traditional, wearable style, and for men.

Our new Elasto Plastic may be the perfect material to usher in a new range of 3D printed and/or partially 3D printed shoes into the market.

Check out Earl’s impressive portfolio featuring additional 3D printed footwear experiments and more.
