Design DNA – Future of Running Shoes

Imagine a shoe tailored to your foot.

The concept isn’t very far away.

Numerous companies are jumping on board this 3D printing revolution that we keep talking about.

Like HERE & HERE

Take Pensar, for example.

They are taking into account the biomechanics of your foot as well as the contour.

To quote their site:

“Throw on trainers outfitted with pressure sensors and accelerometers and go for a run. Bring them back to the store, upload the data and a series of algorithms develops a shoe that fits the way your body moves. Pushing the algorithms further will allow the computer to design a shoe that improves your running form or compensates for imbalances. After the computer crunches the data, you’ll modify the aesthetics, and the 3D printer can start to build your shoe. Within hours you have a shoe tailored to your foot, your movement, and your style.”
