Shoe Design 2.0

Austin makes a great point in noticing how the future of sports footwear is in making right and left shoes that aren’t mirror images of each other. See the GIF above to notice how in a sport like fencing, the right and left leg have different pressure zones, resulting in a need where each shoe has a different role to play. His solution? Differently designed shoes for the left and right foot. Using 3D printing, Ausin’s New Balance Study aims at redesigning fencing shoes keeping varying usage in mind.

The result is two shoes that look a part of the same family, but you can immediately notice how the soles of both feet are completely different, molded by the areas of the feet that feel the most pressure during the lunge forward. Imagine this design philosophy for differently designed footwear carrying forward to other sports like bowling or golf!
