3D-printed shoes push the limits of fashion and technology, only cost $900

Always chasing the latest fashion trends? A fan of 3D printing? Why not combine the two? Well, now you can. A company is offering 3D-printed shoes and they will only set you back $900. The collection is named "strvct" and "uses innovative materials to create fantasy-inspired designs." Take a look:

The shoes aren't just for decoration; they can actually be worn thanks to the durable nylon they are printed from. They also feature a synthetic rubber sole for traction and a "patent leather inner sole." They say that the "triangulated spin on the classic wedge pump...brings to mind Cinderella's glass slipper in its transparency" but I'm not convinced.

 

Theoretically, these shoes could be made at home on a 3D printer, all you need are the designs. But, more importantly, it puts existing technology to cool new uses. The shoes are made to order so they could take a bit of time to be delivered, not to mention $900 seems a bit high to pay for a pair of shoes. Nevertheless, they are cool.
