Linus Knupfer / Shoes

The idea ist to customize the shoe perfectly for nothing but your foot and offering you the support you need in your daily urban life!
It all starts with a 3D Scan of your foot. It collects all relevant information to create a perfectly customized shoe sole. But why stop at the bottom part oft the sole?
Due to 3D-print it is possible to expand the sole upwards and to cover your ankle with a
protecting structure. This feature creates automatically new shapes of footwear and will affect the design extremely.
This sneaker combines the latest knit technology and 3D-printing in one final product.
