3D Printed Shoes for Olympic Athletes

Creative engineer and designer Luc Fusaro is using 3D printing technology to create & ideally manufacture custom sprinting shoes for Olympic athletes. 

 

His current working prototype "Designed to Win" weighs in at 96 grams. He developed soles with varying stiffness and tested them on athletes. 

 

Fusaro is hoping his design will disrupt the current production and manufacturing process of the sportswear industry by using rapid prototyping technologies to produce custom made athletic shoes. 

 

His process, especially the usability testing, is quite amazing. Enjoy the video below.
