3D-Printed Sneakers by Filaflex
Filaflex is an innovative strand but it is not Fila’s answer to Flyknit or Flywire; it’s not even made by the Italian brand known for the Original Tennis, F-13 and various GHes. Filaflex is an elastic filament used in 3D printing, and one of its uses is footwear, as we see in these two sneakers based on the 1.75mm and 3mm sizes. Sneakers from maker supplier Recreus show off the material’s flexibility, and now we’re faced with questions of comfort and aesthetics. Let us know what you think of the styles once you’ve seen them made below and stick with Sneaker News for the latest because this technology is only in its infancy but the implications are staggering.
