3D Printed Shoes: A Step in the Right Direction
The application of the logic of rapid prototyping in the world of shoes, seems an ideal solution for the most common problems.
The first thing is to think of a shoe, is the first fundamental advantage: the measure.
Surely many of us will be found to have to make a difficult choice, especially in terms of half sizes and compatibility / conversion with foreign measurements systems.
If the future of 3D printing and shoes inextricably linking, all these problems would be eliminated, and each of us would have the shoe with a sole molded on the sole of his foot.
In addition to the measure, a molded shoe in 3D and then completely personalized, it would represent the ultimate solution to some postural difficulties.
Some foot deformities (eg. Bunions and flat-footedness) lead the patient to have to choose footwear specifications in order to reduce pain and discomfort. Designing a model directly starting from the foot, it would eliminate all these problems.
The combination of 3D printing and shoes is definitely a revolution that guarantees a double satisfaction. On the one hand the customer happiness, for complete customization and subjective, of the other that of the company, able to significantly reduce inventory costs and storage.
