Tie Heel / High Heel

Tie Heel
Tie Heel

„Tie Heel“ is a reinterpretation of a high heel. The inspiration for Tie HEEL is a tie that is wraped around the foot. It uses the advantages of 3d printing, to guarentee a perfect fit. First the foot is 3d scanned and the shape of the shoe adjusted to it, that provides a perfect fit.The shoe needs very stiff parts (heel) but also flexible ones (sole) this problem is solved by using two materials in one printing procedure, to support the stiff area, a bone strukture is generated to make it more solid. Because itŽs a printed shoe, the costumer has the freedom to choose her favourite details for the sole or toe protection.
