janne kyttanen has created a line of 3D printed, high-heeled shoes that can be downloaded for free, printed overnight, and worn the next day. kyttanen designed the set of products for 3D printing marketplace cubify, to be used with the cubeX printer. a consumer can acquire the free digital files online, select their size, and print them in the color of their choice in approximately six or seven hours time. there are four different styles of the wearables: facet; which gave a geometric construction, macedonia; whose thick soles are pierced with holes, leaf; patterned with a foliage-like facade, and classic; a simple wedge shape.

I don’t know what it is with women and shoes, but I like it. I would like it even better if my girlfriend could wear a different pair every single day. today this is a reality. women can print this first collection of shoes overnight and wake up every morning to a new pair.‘ — janne kyttanen

  • Biodegradeable plastics do exist. You pick the plastic to print with. There are also printers that can do metal, or chocolate, etc. The home priced tech is pretty new so just give it some time. 3D print enthusiasts want renewable too. Some even have setups that grind up old plastic and use that to print with. Here’s the link to the wood filament mentioned by mkc: http://ced.berkeley.edu/events-media/news/wood-salt-and-wonder-the-renewable-future-of-3d-printing

  • With multi-material printers it is now possible to get shoes printed in mixed materials such as wood for strong parts and flexpla for flexible parts.

    No pb with plastic feared people.

  • Um.. the whole idea of 3D printing is marvelous, but the medium used for fabrication isn’t
    And I love shoes, would love to print new ones every night, as well as all manor of other material things, BUT NOT FROM PLASTIC.
    Can’t we try something else a little more sustainable? Please, before the patent on this technique runs out and every home will have a 3D printer churning out all manor of stuff…
