FeetZ Shoes: 3D Printed shoes custom made to fit feet
When you have feet that are in-between standard sizes or half sizes, or one foot is slightly different from the other, finding a comfortable pair of shoes can be especially difficult. FeetZ Shoes is using 3D printing technology to create 3D printed shoes custom made to fit customers’ feet. Customers can take three pictures of each foot and send them to FeetZ. Using specialized software, the company turn the pictures into a 3D model. The complete pair of shoes can be available within seven days. FeetZ are available in different styles and colors. Currently, the material available is a rubber-like substance, but FeetZ expects more materials to become available sometime within the next couple of years. FeetZ Shoes plan to start taking custom orders for shoes later this year.
