More 3D Printed Shoes

After jewelry, the most frequently 3D printed item of clothing seems to be shoes. Some of the designs we’ve seen up to now were totally fantastic but were perhaps more arty than you’d care to wear in “real life”. Now we’re seeing more practical 3D printed shoe designs by artist Hoon Chung of the University of the Arts London. 
Not all of the designs appear to be 3D printed, but least eight are. They’ve been made by joining two different prints together: the upper and the sole. Hopefully the upper is made from a softer material otherwise they could become uncomfortable. 
We’re interested in reader comments, particularly regarding the styles and colors. What do you think?
