A new vision for customizable and recyclable shoes

The Next’ is the name of a new 3D-printed footwear concept from Chinese athletic footwear firm Peak Sports that was introduced at K 2019. The sneaker prototype represents a vision for customizable and recyclable shoes, which is thanks to the fact that the shoes are entirely made from TPU.

As it stands, it’s incredibly difficult for footwear designs to be responsibly disposed of, or even reused, at the end of their useful life but this concept sneaker design offers a different way for footwear to be made in the future.

At the same time the design of the shoe has the capacity to better cater to the individual needs of consumers, it also has the potential to better support the environment.
