Fashionology footwear – elevator shoes and more 3D printing

Are you too short to reach those beautiful dresses hanging on the top rail in clothes shops?  Do you want to appear taller without having to wear heels all the time? Or maybe you are tired of craning your neck to kiss your dashingly tall boyfriend?

Well now, throw that Yellow Pages in the bin, there is a solution!

SHORT++ are interactive robotic shoes that can literally elevate you to new heights! These innovative shoes, created by Adi Marom, are controlled by an iPhone app, so with the touch of a button you can be a few inches taller! To view her videos just click the image below.

They may not be the most beautiful creations, but they are a start!

My last blog post talked about 3D printing and this is going to big, you heard it here first! Students at two of Stockholm’s  most prestigious design schools have collaborated to produce the first, fully-wearable 3D printed shoes.

Naim Josefi of Beckmans and Souzan Youssouf of Konstfack, both designed and modelled the prototypes for Naim’s “Melonia” collection, shown during Stockholm Fashion Show earlier this year.

The concept is brilliant – creating artful shoes using Selective Laser Sintering.
