Shoes by Andreia Chaves

We’re fascinated by the idea of 3D printed shoes for some reason. Perhaps it’s the notion of always having a shoe that fits perfectly. On the other hand, it might the limitless number of astonishing designs one can imagine are possible. One such design was recently made by Andreia Chaves and Freedom of Creation. 
The shoes are made of a 3D printed exterior frame surrounding a more conventional (and comfortable!) handmade inner leather portion. Two models have been produced: a “see through” version and another that has the facets closed. Amazing!
