These 3D printed shoes are flexible and stylish. They use a variety of materials to create a design that is truly unique. Each shoe can be customized through fabric and elastic choice, as well as through additions to the 3D model.
Scale the model to fit your foot and mirror the pieces to get two identical shoes! Happy making! :)
How to make the Foam Upper
While most of the instructions are layed out above, the upper portion of the shoe is a bit more complicated than I illustrated. To make the upper portion of the boot, trace the pattern of the foam upper on the fold of a piece of craft foam. Cut out the foam and repeat on another piece of foam. Next trace the fabric upper on the fold of a piece of fabric and cut one piece. Spray the fabric with spray adhesive on the wrong side of the fabric and lay the foam on top, lining up the holes. Fold the excess fabric over the edges of the foam and secure with hot glue if it doesn't adhere properly. Using a heat gun or a hair dryer, mold the foam pieces to your ankle with the bare foam inside the fabric coated foam. If there are any protruding pieces from the inner piece of foam, trim them off. Next glue the two pieces of foam wrong sides together. I tried to use spray adhesive, but eventually resorted to hot glue. Next install the eyelets following the guidelines on the packaging.
