3D printed shoes hit the runway

3D printed shoes by Iris van Herpen and Rem D Koolhaas

3D printed shoes are the latest installment from a collaborative effort between fashion designer Iris van Herpen and shoe designer Rem D Koolhaas, nephew of famed architect and namesake Rem Koolhaas.

Inspired by tree roots, the designers wanted to create something that reflected the beauty and rawness of the natural world.

The sky-high shoes were made using Objet Connex and Objet Eden printers, provided by Straasys, and were presented at Paris Fashion Week during Iris van Herpen’s couture show.
