3D Print Your Own Sneakers: Fila(ment)

by Lambert Varias

You wouldn’t download a sneaker. Oh you would? Check out Recreus hot off the extruder Sneakerbot II. Unlike Kobes, KDs, LeBrons and other signature kicks, Sneakerbot II won’t ever be hoarded by celebrities and eBay sellers. You can get its 3D model and print a pair anytime you want.

Recreus unveiled Sneakerbot II to promote Filaflex, a 3D printer filament that lets you create flexible or elastic objects.

I don’t think you should wear these as they are; they don’t have insoles or ankle support. But if I had a 3D printer I’d definitely try to make myself a pair of Sneakerbot IIs just for the heck of it. Head to Thingiverse to download the Sneakerbot II’s files. You can order Filaflex from Recreus’ online shop.
